Vertical farming offers the potential to optimize space and resources indoors by stacking structures that hold growing plants. While several factors play key roles in plant development (pH, humidity, CO2 concentration, etc.), the two most crucial variables to control when growing plants indoors are temperature and light. Providing the right light to plants in enclosed spaces has been particularly challenging. However, CEA technology brings sunshine indoors through lamps that supply artificial sunlight.
