., 2013 ; Jiao et al., 2007 ). Changes in light quality, intensity, and duration cause responses at anatomical, physiological, and biochemical levels and, thus, influence plant morphology and functioning ( Haliapas et al., 2008 ). The development of LED

. Verkbert et al. (2004) recommend growing coleus at a minimum DLI of 9 mol·m −2 ·d −1 and no more than 18 mol·m −2 ·d −1 for high-quality plants. However, light tolerance varies among coleus cultivars; some cultivars are best grown in shade, while others
