Ok…I understand that the color we see when looking at something is due to that color of the light spectrum being reflected back because that object doesn’t absorb that color.
With this in mind, I have to wonder…could this have an effect with the color of things surrounding our plants? I understand that a flat, bright white is usually what is recommended, or Mylar (or something similar.)
I grow outside and it caused me to think about the color of my pots. Most seem to be black (mine included) which leads to heat issues at the roots in the summer.
White being all the colors we see combined; the plants response to the blues and reds of the spectrum ; should surrounding objects carry these colors for reflection back to the plants?
Maybe a mottled or tie dye pattern of mostly white with reds and blues mixed in? This would reflect some of those colors back to the plants, or so logic would have me believe.
I was considering green or natural camo pattern for my pots and surrounding fence, but I have time to put this thought out for consideration.
