Abstract

There is described a method of growing a plant having at least one light absorbing pigment, the at least one light absorbing pigment absorbing optical energy at absorbing wavelengths. The method generally has illuminating the plant growing light, the growing light having optical energy within at least two spectral regions each encompassing a given wavelength, the given wavelengths being out of tune with the absorbing wavelengths of the at least one light absorbing pigment, the at least two spectral regions being selected from a group consisting of a first spectral region below 400 nm, a second spectral region at about 430 nm, a third spectral region at about 480 nm, a fourth spectral region at about 95 nm, a fifth spectral region at about 640 nm, a sixth spectral region at about 660 nm and a seventh spectral region at about 675 nm.
