|I use T5 grow light bulbs with 6500 k. They cost about $5 each for 48 inch tubes. I think they are called 'planet lights'. |
Although red and blue light are used mostly by plants, they use all the other colors of the spectrum too. Except green. They don't use a lot of green.
The important part is getting a bulb with over 6000k.
