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.

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.
