Re: [APD] Re: lighting temperature question

The 2700K flourescents were considered by some bulb makers
a minor tirumph, since it (supposedly) make a fluorescent
that looked more like an incandescent. You can be the judge
whether they really pulled it off. Some of the 2700Ks have
give your skin a definite chartruese tinge. But there's
nothing that says chartreuse tinting is less desirable than
than the pinkish magenta tint of some so-called plant

But the plants, like yongsters, will still be happy so long
as you illuminate them.
