Re: [APD] Taller tennellus

There's a fairly simple answer, although the process itself it

Phytochrome is a light sensing pigment in plants. As a plant
gets crowd and an over story is formed, the plant recieves a
different red/far red ratio that Phytochrome responds to by
telling the plant to grow upwards.

Blue light is not going to make the plant stop nor make it
bushier, some seem to think so.........blue light is not
involved in red/far red ratios.....more red and less far red

You can try that and prove it to yourself, it's not easy for a
hobbyists but it is possible.
