Both 5000k and 6500k are great for the vegetative phase, flowering phase, and fruiting phase. So, they are ideal for the general growth of your plants.
Considering this, what is 5000K light good for?
5000K Color Range
The quality of this light is bright and crisp. Small details stand out under this type of light because of the color contrast this crisp light offers. This LED color is best used in industrial spaces, such as factories, or other workplaces where details are important, such as surgery and exam rooms.
Also, what color light is best for plant growth?
What Color Light is Best for Plant Growth?
- Violet-blue light in the 400 – 520 nanometer range encourages chlorophyll absorption, photosynthesis, and growth.
- Red light in the 610 – 720 spectrum range promotes flowering and budding.
Will 5000K LED lights grow plants?
Both 5000K and 6500K white light is great for growing plants, but not as great for flowering them. It will still work fine, but a warmer color temperature would work much better.
Vegetable seedlings and other “full sun” plants require about 2000 to 3000 lumens (at minimum) per square foot of growing space. So, if you’re growing just a single standard tray of seedlings, using a grow light that emits 3000 lumens is sufficient. Otherwise, do the math and scale up to a brighter light.
A 5000K LED bulb produces a bright daylight kind of color. So, it’s good for bathrooms, basements area and your study room. You can even use it in the kitchen when you work. A 4000K LED bulb produces a bright white or cool toned kind of color which gives a warm effect as well as bright enough to work beneath it.
Introducing: Daylight (6500K)
Our new line of cost-effective, energy-efficient A19s offers five varying color temperatures: Warm White (2700K), Soft White (3000K), Bright White (4000K), Cool White (5000K), and Daylight (6500K).
Over 5000K – Generally referred to as daylight and best suited for use in offices, workshops, bathrooms, or other areas where high detail visibility is important. It can also help energize you in the morning.
“Full spectrum” lights usually meet this standard. Any electric light bulb with a “color temperature” of 5000K or higher also meets this standard.
Go any lower to 1000K, and the blue light will drop below what is good for plants. Go higher than 5000K, and so much red light is left out from the spectrum your plants will grow slowly and without much vigor. … But at the end of the day, plants will “veg” and “flower” under any kind of light.
The 50W , 6000K LED lights provides full spectrum light that’s optimal for plant growth.
