Plant response to photoselective plastic films with varying spectral transmission properties was tested using lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum) ‘Florida Pink’, ‘Florida Blue’, and ‘Florida Sky Blue’. Films were designated YXE-10 (far-red light-absorbing film) and SXE-4 (red light absorbing film). Light transmitted through YXE-10 films reduced plant height compared to control plants by 10% (‘Florida Blue’), and stem dry weight by 19% to 40%, but the response varied by cultivar. Internode length… CONTINUE READING
