BTW, Bill Harada posted that the GEs were quite a bit brighter than the Giesemanns at least at first. I haven't heard over the long haul. FWIW, my plants really like the Planta 10000k combo. But I think they stretch a bit since its not as bright and reds are harder to pull out in the plants too.
From my understanding GE's will go yellow after some time. Looks like ill stay away from the Planta bulbs as well.
What is this "Current 10000k"? I have not heard of them but im interested! These would be perfect to mix with the Giesemanns. Let me know, thanks everyone for all the input keep it going.
