What effect does LED plant grow light have on plant taste

The light conditions are different, the growth state of edible plants is different, and the taste of edible plants is also different. We can change the lighting conditions by controlling the state of LED plant grow lights so that the growth state of the plant can be adjusted to improve the taste of the plant and make the taste of the plant more in line with people’s needs.

The effect of a different light on plant growth

Different light intensities, different light time periods, and different wavelengths of light will have different plant states and different tastes.

Different light intensity

The taste of edible plants irradiated by different light intensities is also different. Some plants can quickly photosynthesize under strong light, and some plants can grow normally under weak light. The growth status of plants under different light intensities, which will lead to differences between foods. In the winter season when the light is not strong, the taste of the food grown in the greenhouse is often a little lacking. Enhancing the light intensity of the LED plant grow light will make the plant taste better. A reasonable configuration of light intensity will improve the taste of edible plants.

Different light duration

There are differences in the taste of the plants that can be used with different light hours. Plants undergo photosynthesis for a long time under long-term sunlight and accumulate organic matter. When planted in a dark environment, plants will perform photorespiration and consume organic matter to produce other substances. The taste of edible plants is different for different photoperiods. In the indoor environment, through our research, we found that by using LED plant grow lights to increase the light time of tomatoes, tomatoes will bear more fruits, and they will grow bigger, and at the same time have more sugar. Reasonable control of the light time will adjust the taste of the plant.

The difference in light wavelength

Plants respond differently to different wavelengths of light. Some promote growth, some inhibit growth, some promote photosynthesis, accelerate material accumulation, some promote photorespiration, accelerate material consumption, and some promote the production of carbohydrates. Some promote the formation of chlorophyll. Under different light waves, there are some differences in the growth state of plants and the production of substances in the body, and there will definitely be some differences in taste. Through research, it is found that the reddish light of LED plant grow lights can increase the concentration of strawberry and tomato flavors. Properly adjusting the wavelength of light will make edible plants taste better

There is no difference in taste and nutrients

Although there are differences in the taste of edible plants under different lighting, it will not change the overall taste of the food but will strengthen some flavors and reduce some flavors. Don’t worry about the edible plants grown indoors that have a big difference in taste like the ones you usually eat. The edible plants that need to be cooked have basically the same taste. You can eat raw such as fruits and lettuce. You can make judgments based on your own taste.

The taste of plants grown in an indoor environment may be different, but the nutrients are the same. Don’t worry about the lack of some nutrients due to different lighting environments. The composition of the same edible plant is similar. The reason for the different tastes is not the lack of some substances, but the content of some substances. In the natural environment, the taste of fruits and vegetables grown at different latitudes and longitudes or at different altitudes is also different. Fruits grown at high altitudes in mid-latitudes are sweeter than fruits in other environments. Edible plants grown indoors can be eaten with confidence, and edible plants grown indoors often taste better.

Use LED plant grow lights reasonably to improve plant taste

We already know that changing the plant’s light time, light intensity and other parameters will adjust the growth state of the plant. Under some light conditions, plants will accelerate their flowering and fruiting, and under some light conditions, plants will accelerate their growth and spending on leaves. Different plants need different body parts, some need leaves, and some need fruits. For example, most fruits need how long they need to accumulate more sugar in the fruit, and vegetables such as lettuce need how long their stems and leaves need to accumulate in the body. More chlorophyll. Reasonably adjust the LED plant grow light, adjust the growth state of the plant, let the part of the plant we need to grow better, increase the content of the sugar lamp element in the plant, and improve the taste and quality of the plant.

With the development of LED plant grow light technology to this day, the technology has been greatly improved, people will be more skilled in the control of light, and the quality of crops grown indoors is often better than those outdoors. Even if it is planted in a greenhouse, the plants with LED grow lights for supplementary light grow better than those grown on ordinary farms.

MOKOLight provides growers with flexible LED plant grow lights to meet the needs of growers for different powers. The taste of plants can be adjusted by changing the position and light-emitting period of MOKOLight’s LED plant grow lights. MOKOLight LED plant grow light combines MOKOSmart’s smart switch and smart socket, which can control the indoor LED grow light switch regularly and can also remotely control the indoor LED grow light switch, so as to control the light cycle of plants more intelligently and accurately. MOKOlight LED plant grow lights have provided many users with a high-quality LED grow lights, which have helped many plants grow. Maybe the plants you eat at noon are our credit.
