Could trees, grass, and plants survive without sunlight?

Like not in total darkness but under some kind of light, if so what kind of light? i've been wondering for the past few days.

    They will survive but like half alive and half dead.

    Do you mean artificial light?

    Plants can make photosynthesis by using artificial light (say, coming from a light bulb) as an energy source. It doesn't matter if it comes from the sun or from a fire or from a lamp. A photon is a photon. Not every light wavelength can be absorbed though.

    But when it's in an absorbable wavelength, the source doesn't really matter. That's the point I'm trying to make here.

    As long as there is a source of ultraviolet light, they can survive.

    unless it has the amount of heat available from the source to burn minerals for energy.
