I think you are going to want a lot of blues to offset those yellow LEDs (5000-8300k) You might want to look for ones that are 10,000k or maybe even a bit bluer.
Youre right, I definitely don't want that yellow hue.
's I have give off too much yellow and they are 10,000k. Is that the same as the LED
's as far as color? Will I want to go more than 10,000k?
The 5000 - 8,300k were the whites and there are 12 of them.
The blues are a royal blue Cree xp-e led
and there are also 12 of those. Should I keep it 50/50 or should I just get less white and more blue to offset the yellow...
Way too many variables for me to discern the best way to go.
If I get less whites and more blues am I decreasing par?
Here's a pic of the description of the blues...
