Not sure what you're growing but I use the all white 225s and they work great for cephalotus, drosera, and pinguicula. They give out enough light to make the plants "blush"

I would say a heat mat is more beneficial when germinating seeds indoors. I did 3 batches this year, and all had a roughly 95~100% germination rate. I've only used a 2700k 90+ CRI cree bulb with a heatmat set at 84 ºf

my latest are some 1month 'A2' crossed with 'Jim Grant giant.' I lost most of the seeds due to a surprise shower, so I collected the few still attached to the seed pods and decided see how seeds would do in coco coir.

I have the light on for around 16hrs. I turn it on when I get up and when I go to bed.

The heat mat, I have it on 24/7 since it's a unheated room
