I've just ordered a 4200K version of these: http://www.lighting.philips.com/gl_e...10_philips.pdf. I have a Heliamphora pulchella on its way from Germany and I intend to try to grow it under one of these lamps. Results to follow
the 40 degrees should do well, the 4200k should do well, the 70cri is a wee on the low side for aesthetics but may do well for plant growth....
happy to see ya testing the waters mobile,
22 is what ive been playing with.... i definitely wouldnt go any less
is it the CW spectral curve in the PDF file?
Yes, it's the CW, which is 4200K. I was initially torn between the CW and WW as the red chloropyll peak looks a little low on the CW, compared to that of the WW, but then I noticed that the mW/nm scaling is different between the CW and WW charts, though it still looks like it is half that of the WW. I figured that the plant may benefit more from the higher blue peak.
Thez, too small to be of much use IMHO....even for clandestine applications I'm not sure i see much potential.
But on the cool factor scale, I'd score it pretty high
I bet they just give it away too ;-)

Cephalotus HG that had been on the lower shelf and to one side of my plant rack (lower light level).
Obviously green but growing nicely. Currently sending up winter leaves.
