Thanks for pointing this out! I admit I don't know very much about lighting other than the basics, however your explanation makes sense.
And yes, I def didn't color this light to change the spectrum, just to not shine so harshly.
The fuge, just with this led
desk light, currently houses a bunch of macro/gha/cyano
. So far none has noticeably reached my DT
I think this light is different in spectrum of course from my main lights, and lower in spectrum at that (which puts it roughly in the optimum range for plant growth)
