Light supplements our vision and helps us see things around us. Humans can only see the light that falls in the visible region. Plants, on the other hand, have a much broader sense of light.

Human can see only visible spectrum i.e.; 400 to 700 nm and max absorption happens in green zone. While plants sense light from 320 nm to 780 nm and max absorptions in red and blue zone.

While designing lights for plants (grow lights) it considered a broader spectrum (365 nm UV to 780 nm IR) depends on plant type. In other hand while designing light for human (regular lights) RGB (Red, Green and Blue) plays important role.
