While this is currently not supported "out of the box", one thing you
could do is render the scene as an animation, using monochromatic
textures to model just one single wavelength per frame.

This might also give you more precise results than POV-Ray's standard
RGB colour model.


An alternative approach might be to model the leaves as solid objects,
and use the SSLT feature to model the difference between the reflected
and transmitted colour. However, this might need some tweaking to get
the material properties right.
