What Spectrum Is Best for Strawberries Indoors?

How do different colors affect my strawberries? Which LED should I choose?

Under blue LED lights, strawberries have higher biomass overall, produce more quickly, smaller leaves, and lower levels of anthocyanin and chlorophyll.

Under red Lights, strawberries have a slower, lower yield, less biomass, larger leaves, more anthocyanin, and more chlorophyll.

All in all, you would be better off having a higher blue ratio in your light spectrum if you want a bigger and faster harvest. However, the fruits would also require exposure to red light in order to boost anthocyanin levels and enhance chlorophyll production in the plants.

A full spectrum grow light would be the ideal lighting for strawberries. This is because it will guarantee that the plant receives every spectrum required for uniform and healthy growth.
