I personally love the color of the Giesemann Midday bulbs. They do grow plants very, very well. I was pretty shocked to learn that the spectrum is pretty far from what is best for the plants.
Niko, if you get The Fiji Purple and balance the light with green so its viewable, is that slot you used up for balance worth it ? In the example case of a 2 bulb fixture vs 4 bulb etc ?
