Experimenting with the light
Whether you have a cactus garden, or are interested in having one, you will find that the light conditions play a big part in how well your plant grows. Cacti need sunlight for photosynthesis, but they can also survive in dark conditions for a period of time. The amount of light a cactus requires varies from one species to the next. However, in general, they need four to ten hours of light per day.
To investigate the effects of light on plant growth, researchers manipulated the amount of light that columnar cactus Pilosocereus leucocephalus received in a controlled experiment. The test cactus was exposed to a range of light conditions, and it was placed next to a reference cactus. The photosynthesis process was studied every week.
The test cactus received the same amount of water, but the light condition was changed each week. Cacti in the low light group were not affected, while those in the high light group began showing signs of etiolation after 21 days.
