I am planning to build a greenhouse and I would like some information on the percentage of ultra violet light that passes through blue glass as I understand that clear glass stops 95% of uv rays. I am interested in blue glass, because the information that I have from a civil war general on greenhousing and color therapy, suggests that blue glass has a curative effect on sick plants and animals. References by Ken Kern (Independent Homesteader) who has built many greenhouses in the southwest mentions blue glass as a positive factor in greenhouses. Why? What are the effects of ultra violet rays on plants and viruses and bacteria in a green house, both pro and con. Thank you.
