does colored light effect plant growth?

    Yes. Photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert sunlight into energy, is sensitive to light wavelength. Plants can most effectively use red-orange light (probably no coincidence that that’s what color the sun is), followed by blue-purple light. Oddly enough, plants have trouble photosynthesizing wavelengths at 500 mHz, the color green. This is why plants look green, because their cells are absorbing everything but green light.
