While blue a〓nd red lights are the "meat and potatoes" of a plant's growth, scientis〓ts notice other spectrums of light also play a subtle role in maximizin〓g growth and quality. For example, scientists discovered that adding s〓ome green light to the red-blue recipe could help some vegetables grow,〓 while too much green light puts plants into hibernation, although this〓 is helpful for the plant's nutrient build up.

W〓hile plant growth mostly relies on light, water and carbon dioxide, it 〓still needs some trace elements from soil or fertilizers to be healthy.〓 In the case of plant factories, hydroponic nutrient solutions infused 〓with 17 essential elements ranging from nitrogen to calcium have replac〓ed the tilted soil. "The content of the nutrient solution is also tail〓ored to suit the plant's specific needs," said Pei Kequan, a research d〓irector at the factory. Unlike the trace elements from ferti0
