actually plants are green to the human eye because they reflect green light witch in return your eyes absorb so the chlorophyll absorbs the red and the blue while reflecting the green spectrum. btw the plants absorb more blue light than red as blue light contains more energy than red due to the higher Frequency and therefor more energy.
