Will bean plants grow better under sunlight or artificial light?
Do plants grow better in artificial light or under sunlight?
Under artificial light, plants are not subject to weather conditions, insects, parasitic and aggressive plants. Also the light is more consistent and can be provided for more hours. So the consensus must be that plants will grow better under artificial light rather than natural light unless their species is particularly sensitive to the wave length of the light.
Asked in Biology, Genetics, Photosynthesis
Does photosynthesis and cellular respiration occur during the day?
Photosynthesis can only occur at a time when there is plenty of light for the plant so plants photosynthesise at day time or under a bright light. Plants are therefore unable to photosynthesise in the dark or when enough water is not available. However respiration occurs all the time in animals as well as plants and is a process in which energy is released from glucose.

Would plants still be green if there was no sun?
If there were no Sun, and no other source of radiant energy, the plants (and the entire planet) would quickly freeze. And since the color of an object is determined by the color of the light that is reflected by the object, with no light there would be no color, and everything would be black. If we grow plants under artificial light on a space station, then the light on the space station (even if artificial) would be the same kinds of light that we humans prefer, so the plants on the space station would continue to be green.

How does artificial light affect a plant's growth?
How plant growth is affected by artificial light depends on the type of light that is being discussed. While all plants grow best in natural light, plants can an do grow and thrive under artificial lighting conditions. Overall, the best lighting choice should give off a high amount of blue, red and yellow light. Plants need the light in the blue spectrum to provide energy for photosynthesis. Light in the red spectrum encourages blooming, and yellow light is necessary for chlorophyll to be produced, which also aids in photosynthesis. Grow lights, which combine these colors, are made specifically for growing plants indoors, and can be purchased at garden centers.
Do plants grow better under sunlight or artificial light?
In general, sunlight is better for plant growth as it is intense and contains the full spectrum of electromagnetic radiation required for optimal plant growth. Artificial light, if it is an ordinary room light, will only support low-light tolerant plants. Most artificial light sources (fluorescent and incandescent) do not provide the full visible light spectrum that is required by plants for optimal growth, this results in plants that are tall and spindly (etiolated) and sometimes discolored. However, there are special lights with a spectrum that is tailored for growing plants. They have to be on for longer hours than sunlight, but as long as a plant is getting enough light-energy to manufacture its food, it will grow well. It doesn't matter whether that light is coming from the sun or from grow lights. The downside to extended exposure to light is the plants metabolic functions operate twice as hard for the same amount of output. Recent studies have also highlighted some of the negative aspects of extended photosynthetic periods (extended light reactive period and shortened dark reaction period). There are times when artificial light has an advantage. Hydroponic gardening with artificial light makes it possible to grow plants in unreliable climates that are lacking in sunshine - think of the long "night" periods of areas of the northern hemisphere. In some places in Canada forage for animals is produced indoors during the winter months in artificial conditions. Supplemental lighting is used in horticulture to produce plants in flower outside of their normal flowering period. For instance Christmas cactus, poinsettias, tulips, narcissus, chrysanthemums, etc. Many houseplants grow better under artificial lamps, not because of the lights, but because it keeps them away from drafty windowsills! Plants will grow better under sunlight; artificial light lacks the complete spectrum of light provided by the sun. You can purchase "grow lights" which have a special coating on the bulb to produce more light in the spectrum that plants need to photosynthesize. However, they can never completely duplicate natural sunlight. Artificial lights are produced to help humans see in the dark, so they only need to produce light in the visible spectrum.
Do plants grow better under sunlight or artificial light conclusions?
How does the African violet respond to different kinds of light?
Bright vs. Dim Bright light will cause the center of the plant to grow very tightly, and can cause 'sunburns' on the leaves. Not enough light will cause the leaves to reach up (and look like a celery plant!). Natural light vs. artificial light Some plants seem to do best with natural light, and others only seem happy under regulated artificial lights! You can experiment and see what your plant likes best. The temperature also has an effect on the plants, especially variegated plants!
