Nature of Light - Floral Induction

Red light promotes flowering in short day plants. If the dark regime of a short day plant is interrupted by red light, flowering is inhibited, indicating the importance of the uninterrupted dark period.

Chlorophyll can be ruled out as chlorophyll never shows any such far-red light reversal effects.
