  • Growing White Plants and Light Spectrum

    Created by macwd04 on

    Hello, first time posting. I am an amateur aquascaper and a few months ago, I acquired some glossostigma elatinoides platinum. Normal glossostigma grows super quickly like a weed and I’ve never had an issue with it. I am growing the platinum (white variant) emersed from a tissue culture and am getting extremely slow growth. I’ve heard that white plants require a different light spectrum to photosynthesize. Does anyone know what type of lights I should be using? I’ve been trying different lights around 6500-8000K and have gotten virtually no growth for a few months. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, did you solve it? I’d like to recommend indoor greenhouses with built-in lighting. Here is the article for more information

    White light, in fact, is an excellent way to cultivate plants. After all, the sun emits white light. The most significant wavelengths for photosynthesis are red and blue, however plants use all wavelengths of light. White light, on the other hand, contains all wavelengths. Check here
