Just a thought, but here goes. Since red plants are red, wouldn't that make sense to say they are deeper water plants? And, blue light reaches the deepest of depths, so maybe they need lots of blue light, which is why they are usually considered HIGH light plants by regular standards, since it takes a LOT of light out of a standard 5000-6500 K bulbs to produce a lot of blue light... Anybody know any more information about this?
