Why do we include green in our Phyto-Genesis Spectrum™?

While it is true that green light is reflected more than other colors by the chlorophyll in plant leaves (this is why they look green), this doesn't mean plants don't use any green light. Other pigments in leaves such as carotenes and xanthophylls harvest some green light and transfer it to the photosynthetic process. The small amount of green we include in our LED grow light spectrum also serves as an aid for viewing the plants, allowing easier diagnosis of issues such as nutrient deficiencies, pest and disease problems.
