, MA). As a result of the limitation of the radiation sensors to accurately measure artificial lighting above 650 nm (LED and HPS), a spectroradiometer (PS-100; Apogee Instruments) was used to calculate full spectrum irradiance (during the dark cycle

:blue light for 5 d was significantly lower (resulting in darker foliage) than those under the control ( Table 3 ). As exposure to EOP SL increased from 3 to 14 d, L* values decreased for plants under LED treatments providing 100 µmol·m −2 ·s −1 . Additionally
