What Does Chlorophyll A Mean?
Chlorophyll is the pigment in all plants that makes them green. The plant relies on chlorophyll to harness the light produced by the sun or grow lights for growth and water absorption. Chlorophyll is a molecule.
All plant chlorophyll is divided into either 'chlorophyll A' or 'chlorophyll B'. The two types of chlorophyll differ only slightly in one small composition sidechain: chlorophyll A is -CH3, and chlorophyll B it is CHO.
Working in unison, chlorophyll A absorbs wavelengths that range from 430 to 662 nanometer spectrums and chlorophyll B absorbs wavelengths between 400 to 700 nanometers.
