Definition of natural light

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by mwhit:

Light supplied by the sun, as opposed to artificial light from light bulbs. As long as the intensity is the same each has the same effect on plants.Can be used in combination with artificial light to meet the requirements of your plants.

When determining light intensity, thought should be given to heat generated as well, since plants can be burned by sunlight as well as artificial light sources. Artificial light should be from a "cool" source (eg:fluorescent) and natural light may need to be filtered to avoid heat damage to plants.
