Analysis of Arabidopsis Light-Sensitive Mutants Grown Under Different Ratios of LED or Fluorescent Lighting

Analysis of Arabidopsis Light-Sensitive Mutants Grown Under Different Ratios of LED or Fluorescent Lighting

October 13, 2015

Our analysis of leaf size, shape, and number, as well as days to flowering, indicated differences in growth patterns between light conditions. Mid PPFD and max PPFD LEDs also showed some phenotypic growth differences compared to fluorescent lighting.

LED Lighting and Phalaenopsis Orchids, Light Wavelength Effect on Flowering Spike

LED Lighting and Phalaenopsis Orchids, Light Wavelength Effect on Flowering Spike

October 13, 2015

LED lighting allows for specific application of light wavelength and intensity. Different plant morphologies are achievable by manipulating light at specific wavelengths in a way that previous lighting technologies did not allow. Selecting various wavelengths of light can influence the growth and morphology of horticultural crops including the currently popular Phalaenopsis orchid. The object of the work is to influence the growth and elongation of Phalaenopsis orchid flower spikes under varying intensities of red and blue light.

Optimum Supplemental LED Intensity for Cut Gerbera at Northern Latitudes

Optimum Supplemental LED Intensity for Cut Gerbera at Northern Latitudes

October 13, 2015

At higher latitudes, cut flower growers rely on supplemental lighting for maximizing production in the darker months.
Horticultural LEDs have been proven to produce similar or better crops (in terms of yield and quality) compared with HPS; while also having longer lifespans, higher energy efficiencies & can be controlled in terms of spectral distribution & intensity.
