Orchid Board – Most Complete Orchid Forum on the web ! > STYLES, SETUPS & ENCLOSURES > Growing Under Lights > Affect of Artificial Light on Orchids.  “The reason that non filament lighting sources do not get a 100% CRI rating, is that they are made up of specific salts, which ‘burn’ at different specific colors, they add all these colors up and get something approximating ‘white’ light. This can be good or bad for plants…Although it seems we would want a filament bulb because it has a linear spectrum (all color equal) unfortunately filament bulbs are very wasteful.” – Jueqian Fang. Exhibit runs thru May 22.
