Can photosynthesis occur under artificial light?
In this way, can plants photosynthesize with LED light?
Takeaway: One of the benefits of growing with LED lights is that their spectral intensity can be customized to suit the different stages of plant growth. It all has to do with the photosynthesis process, during which plants use water, carbon dioxide and light as the source of energy to produce glucose and oxygen.
Also, can photosynthesis be artificially created? Artificial photosynthesis is a chemical process that biomimics the natural process of photosynthesis to convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into carbohydrates and oxygen. Photocatalytic water splitting converts water into hydrogen and oxygen and is a major research topic of artificial photosynthesis.
Just so, can plants photosynthesize from light bulbs?
2 Answers. Typically, regular incandescent bulbs like the ones you'd use in your house omit orange and yellow light. These wavelengths of light are used in photosynthesis but foliage growth relies more on blue wavelengths of light. Therefore regular lights aren't ideal for the growth of plants.
Can plants survive on artificial light?
Sunlight is the perfect balance of wavelengths necessary for plant growth and blooming, but you can also use artificial light to help your plants along. In fact, low-light foliage plants (such as pothos and peace lily) can grow quite nicely in windowless offices with enough artificial light.
