The effect of monochromatic light, red, yellow, green and blue has been studied on the cultures of Cladophora crispata against white and total darkness with reference to the growth, morphological variation and pigment changes. Maximum growth was observed under white light. Red light favoured the growth while blue light and darkness retarded totally its growth.
