    Those numbers (~3000 K and ~6500 K) are on the boxes, so you must be correct. Notation on the boxes say red light and blue light respectively, so

    I'm thinking of getting some LED lights as a supplement for winter. I'm going to do a very crude, minimal set up with clamp lamps & LED bulbs. What wattage should I be looking at? The way most of the plants are arranged now are on 36 inch long shelves so I wanted to do one light per shelf if possible. My collection has grown to large to rely on the windowsills alone, plus I want them to flourish during the winter. Any help is much appreciated!
