COMPARISON OF THE EFFECTS OF LED LIGHT QUALITY COMBINATION ON GROWTH IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT HORTICULTURE IN GREEN CHILI (CAPSICUM FRUTESCENS)
Abstract: This study explores how green chili (Capsicum frutescens) plant growth is affected by blue and red light spectra, focused on important factors including hypocotyl height, total leaf area, stem diameter and stem strength under controlled environment. According to our research, there considerably improves hypocotyl height and total leaf area, which suggests improved leaf expansion and stem elongation under red light. On the other hand blue light promotes stronger stems in green chili plants. These findings suggested that the most successful method for maximizing green chili growth may use both the blue and red light spectra.
