How Does Blue Light Impact Plants?

We recently investigated how everyday consumption of blue light impacts humans. Emphasizing the health risks of overexposure, we saw how LEDs can suppress blue light’s detrimental impact on humans.  In this post, we will explore how plants are affected by changes in the electromagnetic spectrum. With advancements in LED technology and increased spectral control, we can observe how colored light (specifically blue light) contributes towards plant growth and flowering.

How Does Blue Light Impact Humans?

Although the use of blue light is an excellent solution to provide environmentally friendly lighting, it also poses a large number of health risks and disadvantages for humans. Before the creation of artificial lighting, overexposure to blue light was never an issue. Now, thanks to newer lighting technologies, our evenings and nights are flooded with illumination. As a result, excessive quantities of blue light and poor lighting, in general, can pose threats such as:
