Hehe, 80 plus is like, cold, when compared to the 95-110 we get here sometimes. But I now have them under a growlight (50 watt full spectrum) is that allright? The temps in my room are also cooler and I plan on making a stronger light next month or so.
I may seem grumpy. I'm not. I'm just very critical about subjects I have tested and fiddled with myself. I'm always open to advice, but don't try to force me.

Heh, they dont have a color temp. Full spectrum mean they have blue, red and everything in between. In my case, they have a wavelength of 380 to 840 nanometers. 380 is just about ultraviolet. 840 is just about infrared. As the rating goes from 380 to 840, it gives off blue, yellow, green, aqua, orange, red, ultrared, infrared, ultraviolet, violet and purple. A few more colors too. They did a rather scary job of coloring my drosera seedlings a light for some and a dark crimson for others. They did not color like that at all when I used my 85 watt cfl...
