All plants need light, at least the ones that I will grow in the SCGA.

I have some work completed on the LED board that will supply the light to my plants. I did some research and read that there are two specific bandwidths of light that are the most beneficial for plant growth. Quick Google brought me to this -->

Red light (640nm-680nm)Blue light (430nm-450nm)

I will focus my efforts on these two spectrums and develop the necessary PCB to provide just these two for the added light for this project.

I liked this article (with the pretty pictures) as well;

I find it interesting that there is the possibility of height suppression in relation to the amount of blue spectrum light vs red spectrum light.
