benefits provided by brassica microgreens. The ability to impact the phytochemical content of brassica microgreens has been recently investigated using SS LEDs. In terms of lightintensity, Samuoliené et al. (2013) grew four species of brassica

Schefflera arboricola is a member of the family Araliaceae and one of the most popular foliage plants used to landscape interiors. Generally, low lightintensities, typical for indoors, increase leaf drop and reduce leaf quality ( Conover and
et al., 2014 ). Insufficient lightintensity may limit the assimilation of plant carbon and reduce the activity of carbon assimilation enzymes ( Allen and Ort, 2001 ; Dai et al., 2009 ), thereby reducing the net photosynthetic rate ( P n ), effective
-state lighting LED is one of the leading advancements in horticultural lighting in the last decade. Lightintensity is one of the most important environmental factors for plant growth ( Naoya et al., 2008 ). In contrast with high-intensitylight, low-intensity
developmental and yield responses to a wide range of temperature and lightintensities obtained at different planting times were examined to determine the responses of these variables to mean daily temperature and cumulative daily lightintensity.
plants under a controlled environment can be considered an alternative way for medicinal plant production to ensure safety and efficacy.
A number of earlier investigations have reported that environmental factors such as lightintensity can
