    It depends really. Blue is the part of the spectrum which gives the most vegative growth but actinic per say is too much. You would be wise to add more color to your spectrum. Actually what kind exactly is the light, like brand or type etc.......? That would be helpful to know if it is beneficial. If it is a blue tinted incandescent (like the party bulbs) then it has basically no value to your plants.

    I wouldnt use just blue light... If you used that as an extra supplement along with a full spectrum and cool white, I think it would turn out well.
