White would be the entirety of the spectrum. I'd imagine some people would claim having two specific spectrums tailored to growth(Red is more for flowering) would be more effective but I use white for the most part. Guess it ultimately depends on the aesthetic you're going for. If you like the purple go with it. Perhaps you'd see more flowers with the purple. Not sure. It'd be interesting to find out. I do actually use 3000k bulbs on my T5 though so it's kind of a combination of white and orange.
Also, one last question, I picked up one of those 15 dollar gooseneck LED lights, and it has the ability to have different colored lights. Is it better to just do the regular full spectrum "white" light, or should I run it under the purple lights? I've seen people do that with their set ups and I have no idea if that's something I should be playing with this early on.
