LEDs Control Growth and Flowering in Greenhouse Grown Zinnia

LED Grown Zinnia

This study used Zinnia marylandica as a model organism to evaluate four different LED light treatments in the greenhouse. In each condition, natural light was supplemented with 250 μmol·m−2·s−1 of light. Two additional treatments were evaluated: no supplemental lighting (NSL), and a 400-watt HPS.
