Ambient lighting (room) effects on a planted tank

  • I was curious as to whether or not anyone has definitively worked this out and found out whether or not the ambient lighting in a room will mess with the plant's ability to regulate it's photosynthetic processes in a tank.

    Obviously, there are variables that may have an effect on the answer to this question such as the room's light intensity, whether it's on 24/7 or experiences intervals of complete darkness and what have you.

    Honestly, a general answer from those that have done their own experimentation and observation that in which I may compare my own findings to is all I'm looking for.

    I appreciate the help if anyone has any valuable feedback or can point me to an answer through someone’s own experiences.
