    I will let you know right off the bat that I have no idea about leds but I can explain how I use my MH/HPS HID grow light and maybe that will shed a little “light” (LOL) on the subject. I use a 600 watt 6500K spectrum MH bulb in veg because of the blue spectrum that replicates the sun in spring and summer. I use the MH in veg to keep the plants low, promote vegetive growth, and to stack nodes tighter for flowering period preparation . If it is a really stretchy strain in preflower, I will run the MH about half way through the preflower stretch as well so my plants don’t get too tall for my grow space. The 1000 watt HPS bulb is a 2700K but also has 27% blue spectrum. That is because of the brand of bulb. I like it because it provides a fuller spectrum than just a 2700K bulb. The 2700K color spectrum promotes flowering as well as rooting also. It replicates the sun in winter/early spring, late summer, and fall. That’s the best I can do for you. Good luck and happy growing my friend!

      Great answer, from my understanding it's exactly the same with LEDs. Mine has a blue dominant for veg and red dominant switch for flowering. You can veg with both on though.

    I'm not sure if this is a question or just a statement. There is a little more to it than just kelvin.

    I'm not sure this will help but my understanding is the plant needs certain spectrums (colors) and most led makers list how much of each color they use. These come from different diodes, whereas, a HID light produces all spectrums from one location. Cob leds pretty much does the same thing because they cluster all the diodes together so the light appears to all come from the same place.

     I was always told the "k" rating determines the "warmth", or how much red, or the "coolness", or how much red, a bulb produces. The higher the number, the "cooler" the light spectrum.

    Second question or whatever you want to call it in a row that makes no sense. People need to ask a question or make a statement but provide more information please. I am calm, very calm right now.  Peace
