Better Chrysanthemum flowering and rooting with Far Red LEDs

New research shows that far red LEDs can speed up flowering and rooting for Chrysanthemums and other floriculture crops. A new Far Red LED toplighting module is now available.


Based on trials in flowering plants, we carry out research projects on the effect of the lighting spectrum on both the photosynthesis (creating biomass) and morphology of flowers. Results from new research carried out with the Wageningen University & Research Center (WUR), show that adding a bit of far red light speeds up flowering of floriculture applications. Besides the effect on flowering, we have also seen some positive effects on rooting.
