So, I found a list of L.E.D.'s from Cree here (the company seems to be known for efficiency, they power most of the bicycle lights that I know of) is selling a line of lights designed for growing plants. If you click on the data sheets, you'll find something like this:
Now, I know that plants reflect green preferentially because it is the least useful color to them (energetically speaking) so I assume that this matters.
I know the first few things about electronics, so I would really like to use one of these in something that I build. However,the question becomes:
What kind of spectrum light and I looking for? What is the difference between the "vertical farming" lights and the greenhouse lights? (Viewing angle?
I kind of want to put some plants in a box coated internally with aluminum foil (it can reflect more than 90% of the energy), and hook one of these bad boys up for some inside growing. Thanks alot.
