We studied growth of potato plantlets of two cultivars under different constant polychromatic light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and dynamic lighting with the spectrum modifications during growth. Light sources constructed by us were sunbox SB, red-green-blue RGB, and full spectrum FS, red-blue. White luminescent lamps were used as control light. Dynamic lighting was achieved by transferring groups of plantlets from one box to another. Red/green/blue portions in the light sources were (in percents):

Plantlets developed differently from initial stages. Cultivar 'Red Scarlett' appeared to be more susceptible to different lighting than 'Innovator'. Light variations RGB and RGB-SB were the most favorable for plantlet development. This is the first report on the dynamic lighting application for growing potato plantlets.
