How good will my chronic grow if I grow it under under a Phillips halogena 75watt flood light?
Plants, in fact, do grow faster under certain colors of light. The reason for this is that chloroplasts can only absorb certain wavelengths of light because of the pigments they contain. There are 2 photosystems in plants called photosystem I and II. PS I absorbs light on the wavelength of 700nm whi…le PS II absorbs 680nm because of their utilization of chlorophyll A and B. These two frequencies are known as the peak absorption points because they are the wavelength at which light is most strongly absorbed. Different forms of chlorophyll and other photosynthetic pigments absorb other frequencies of light, but PS I and PS II are what is used for synthesizing ATP and reducing power which plants use to grow. The visible spectrum of light is between 380-750nm for humans. Therefore PS I and II require red light to perform photosynthesis. As stated before, however, there are other photosynthetic pigments present in plants and other phototrophic species such as bacteria and algae that absorb other pigments. An example of this is the carotenoid pigment that absorbs primarily blue light as do chlorophyll A and B. Blue light contains more energy than red light but for PS I and II and plant growth both are needed. Studies in the 50's showed that the rate of photosynthesis increased under far-red and red light compared to other frequencies. Green plants will grow SLOWER or not at all under green light. Basically, green is the only brand of light that the plant's chloroplasts doesn't use. That is why it is the only color reflected from the leaf, and is what we see. (MORE)
In general, sunlight is better for plant growth as it is intense and contains the full spectrum of electromagnetic radiation required for optimal plant growth. Artificial light, if it is an ordinary room light, will only support low-light tolerant plants. Most artificial light sources (fluorescen…t and incandescent) do not provide the full visible light spectrum that is required by plants for optimal growth, this results in plants that are tall and spindly (etiolated) and sometimes discolored. However, there are special lights with a spectrum that is tailored for growing plants. They have to be on for longer hours than sunlight, but as long as a plant is getting enough light-energy to manufacture its food, it will grow well. It doesn't matter whether that light is coming from the sun or from grow lights. The downside to extended exposure to light is the plants metabolic functions operate twice as hard for the same amount of output. Recent studies have also highlighted some of the negative aspects of extended photosynthetic periods (extended light reactive period and shortened dark reaction period). There are times when artificial light has an advantage. Hydroponic gardening with artificial light makes it possible to grow plants in unreliable climates that are lacking in sunshine - think of the long "night" periods of areas of the northern hemisphere. In some places in Canada forage for animals is produced indoors during the winter months in artificial conditions. Supplemental lighting is used in horticulture to produce plants in flower outside of their normal flowering period. For instance Christmas cactus, poinsettias, tulips, narcissus, chrysanthemums, etc. Many houseplants grow better under artificial lamps, not because of the lights, but because it keeps them away from drafty windowsills! . Plants will grow better under sunlight; artificial light lacks the complete spectrum of light provided by the sun. You can purchase "grow lights" which have a special coating on the bulb to produce more light in the spectrum that plants need to photosynthesize. However, they can never completely duplicate natural sunlight. Artificial lights are produced to help humans see in the dark, so they only need to produce light in the visible spectrum. (MORE)
Answer . yams, potatoes, taro. these are all that I know of. I am sure their are many more.
Most plant life needs full spectrum lighting. In early stages of a flowering plant, it would need a blue and green spectrum (achieved with usually metal halide light) and then switched over to a red and orange spectrum (using high pressure sodium lighting). Growing a plant under pure yellow light wi…ll most likely make the plant grow quickly, but wiry - the stem will get really long and the top of the plant will most likely fall over eventually). It depends on the plant. Pure yellow light uses the red/orange spectrum and cacti do well in this type of lighting. Houseplants (which prefer blue/green spectrum) would most likely do poorly in "pure yellow light". (MORE)
Peanuts grow well in any sandy place where it's warm for 120 to 140 days, moderately rainy (25 to 50 inches yearly), and no frost. The plant originated in South America, perhaps Brazil or Bolivia, and now is grown worldwide. Georgia grows nearly half the US crop.
no yes it can i tried it and it grew perfectly you just have to make sure its one of those twistable lamp to rise the lamp when the plant gets bigger
Some beans form in a pod that develops from the plant's flowers. Some legumes, like the Bambara groundnut do grow underground. Peanuts are legumes and grow underground.
Plants grow best under red light and blue is good to im not sure about yellow mabe if your doing a science fair test on this use these colours brown,green,clear,red and blue i know because i did my test on this
Well, it's very hard to understand. Hair grows under your arms because we're mamals. Now, don't get confused. We are humans but we're mamals too. If you don't understand, you could always ask a teacher or search it on Google. that's the most I know about this subject. But, don't worry, it's complete…ly normal to grow hair under your arms.

yes plants do actually plants grow better under red and white light than any other color.
Plants use light energy (present in the photons of blue and red light) to break apart carbon dioxide and combine it with nutrients in order to produce glucose. Any lighting will do as long as it is a strong emitter of blue and red light; the sun is one, and fluorescent bulbs are another.
No --- it is grown either from seeds or from the bottom of a stalk and grows above ground.
Seaweed grows under water by absorbing the minerals and nutrients from the water. They also get the sunlight that reflects through the water since they are plants.
no you need white lights not yellow buy the energy saver ones. that look like a spring. they are the best.
because some wavelengths are more simliar to the ones the sun emits and natural light is best for growing plants in which case the more similar they are to the sun's wavelengths they are, the better it is for the plants.
How good will weed be when grown under a couple regular lights Can i still grow a plant from a chronic seed that will taste like chronic?
Like most plants, marijuana will grow fairly well under normal lights, just don't put them close enough to dry out the leaves. As for your question about 'chronic' seeds, you'll have to wait for someone else, I don't know. Warning: Growing weed is illegal in the US as well as many other places. …The punishments are pretty severe too. Be careful. (MORE)
Bean plants will grow better under sunlight because sunlight has alot of vitamins that artificial light doesn't have.
Plants grow best under a combination of red(620-750 nm) and blue(450-475nm)light and respond best to particular wavelengths within the light spectrum(given in nano-meters(nm). The wavelength that the plant will respond to best depends on what kind of plant it is and at what growth stage it is in. Ge…nerally the correct ratio of red to blue light will produce a magenta color. The most common way of producing this color in a light suitable for growing is LED. Compared to older generation grow lights they are much more expensive, however are much cheaper to run,have a longer life, and produces less heat. . (MORE)
Gravitropism's plant response to gravity, phototropism to light. Plant organs such as root and stem tips, and light-sensitive receptors, sense the different wavelengths of blue light and of red. Below ground, gravity and negative sensitivity to blue draw plant roots downward. Above ground, light sen…sitivity draws plant shoots upward. Stem tips are always sensitive to blue light. Depending upon the plant, they aren't always also sensitive to red. Plant shoots grow toward light, be it artificial or solar, as long as the wavelength of the source matches the wavelength needs of the plant. (MORE)
No, a plant cannot grow at all with a green light Plants use red blue and some yellows to produce photosynthesis Green is what is reflected so it is what you see. Plants do not use green light at all.
No, coconuts do not grow underground. They grow on palm trees, high up off the ground.
Quick cycling brassica, Brassica rapa is about the best at 40 days for a full life cycle.
It is the same hour for hour. The difference would be the size ofthe grow light. The bigger the grow light, the more usable lightthe plant is going to get in a period of time. A grow light shouldnever be left on for more then 18 hours. You will stress out theplant, they all need some dark time.
Not many plants grow under casuarinas because of the needles. Plants dont have to grow everywhere, Apart from human cleared areas casuarina needles create some of the few gaps in the forest for animals to hang out in. I could tell you which species grow naturally under them in my area. But they may …not be endemic to your area. There are a number of invasive weeds that are able to grow under Casuarinas. These are terrible plants and I certainly dont want people to grow them. Ehrharta erecta, Cyperus, Bidens pilosa. Plants can grow from runners or suckers in Casuarina needles also. An example of a tree that can grow by suckering through Casuarina needles is the Casuarina. =] . Go out and see what grows under them naturally in your area, and if you are going to grow some yourself insure that they are provenant to your area. read - What is provenant? I only propagate endemic provenant indigenous plants. I dislike people who treat plants like toys. "OW Look isn't that JESSAMINE pretty , I'm going to plant it everywhere because I'm an *&^%$#@". Know what I mean? (MORE)
Soil under houses is usually very dry and there is not much light. Even weeds need moisture and many like full sun.
No, they grow from a plant that has a little yellow/white flower that matures as zucchini.
No you would need a 400 watt hps lamp for flowering but you could probably use that cfl for the veg period
Most plants will do just fine under artificial light too, as long as the light appears about the same as sunlight to human eyes.
plants require both red and blue light in order to grow sucessfully, they do however not require green light
No. They cannot live past ,like, one week. I did my science fair project on it.
its better to grow in the sunlight because it will be real,natural light.and plants are part of nature so it's better to use natural thing for them
it grows better in lamplight because lamplight provides a closer surrounding and can still make the plant get energy where the sun is further away making the minerals and soil take longer to make food for the plant.
The sun emits all sorts of colored waves that are good for both flowers and foliage. If you are looking to grow a plant with a lot of foliage you need a light that emits a blue wave, which would be the fluorescent club. An incandescent emits a red wave good for flowers but be careful not to put them… too close or they will get burned. Sort answer you fluorescent gives the specific wave needed for exponential growth. Hope that helps. (MORE)
Your nails grow under because of the way you cut them or bite them. You need to let them grow long enough before you cut them off.
Then you have a damp problem. Call a plumber.... it is important you get this seen to the fungus could do extensive damage to the house if you allow it to spread.
No, after a month your plant will probably be coming out of the vegetative state.
actually I did this same qusetion for school and the one with barely any light grow fastest but the one under the lamp grow taller
It would not grow well at all since yellow is not the wave length of light that plants use to photosynthesize.
Natural Light because it sends of nutrients to the plant and is better for photosynthesis.
well that's easy! the thing is it cant grow under a type of light your talking about it needs the sun and water!
Place seeds in separate buckets or pots in a dark room. Hang a colored light bulb over (at equal distances from the pots) each making sure that no light from one bulb goes onto any other plants. Also be sure that when you enter the dark room to water the plants every day, no light from outside enter…s. Turn each light bulb on and off at the same time each day. (MORE)
Pants don't actually grow...they may stretch or shrink. It is more likely that you have lost weight.
New skin ! If you cut yourself, the body despatches loads of platelets to the wound site to stop blood oozing out - which form the scab. This is a barrier to stop infection getting into the cut. Underneath the the scab, the body sets to work forming new skin and blood vessels to repair the cut.
Some plants can survive (and thrive) in low sunlight. Others require full, direct sunlight for several hours per day. Talk to the folks at your local nursery to determine which plants would be best for your particular situation.
Yes, it will. Keep it in a dark moist place with a blacklight over it and it should grow fine.
Nothing really grows under the ground, but many vegetables do grow in the ground. These include: Potatoes Radishes Carrots and any other root vegetables.
Simply because it depends on the type of light it is grown under.Otherwise the best type of light for a plant is sunlight.
High Intensity Grow Lights For Plants: High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights are commonly used by indoor cannabis growers because of its lumens-per-watt efficiency, spectral balance and brilliance. To maximize production per watt a grower must keep manage the light close to the plant but not burn… the plant. When using grow lights for plants the intensity of the light and the light's distance from the plant must be considered. Light intensity doubles for every 6 inches closer an HID is to the plant. Therefore using several small lamps with lower wattage can often cover more real estate better than one large, high wattage lamp. Some benefits include: . More points of source light . More even distribution of light . Able to put lights closer to plants The most common HID lights for growing are metal halide and high pressure sodium. Metal Halide (MH) Metal halide grow lights for plants produce an abundance of cooler, blue light. This light promotes leafy, bushy growth making makes MH bulbs good for early to vegetative phase of a plant. These bulbs have about 12,000 hours of life or two years of 18hour/daily use, the recommended hours for vegetative growth. It's a good idea to track the bulb's life so you know when to replace it. The bulb's gradual decline in intensity will rob your plants of needed light spectrum so don't wait till the bulb burns out before replacing it. And keep spares on hand. MH bulbs also come in super metal halides which go to eleven. Super metals put out approximately 15% more lumens. (MORE)
No, kiwi is categorized as a parasite plant (parasitus inhomnia plantus). And like most of parasite plants they need a decaying or live organisms to develop their seeds. During hot weather the kiwi tree which does not produce any fruits releases its spores, then nearby animals inhale these spores wh…ich travel down the esophagus (feeding tract) and start developing. Later on when the animal dies farmers cut it open and harvest kiwi. (MORE)
Under artificial light, plants are not subject to weather conditions, insects, parasitic and aggressive plants. Also the light is more consistent and can be provided for more hours. So the consensus must be that plants will grow better under artificial light rather than natural light unless their …species is particularly sensitive to the wave length of the light. (MORE)
