 I  have  been  keeping  hair  grass.  The  next  few  week  will  give  me  a  good  idea  about  how  they  respond  to  Cree  LED's  and  the  increased  light.
 
 I  have  some  wild  collected  hydrocotyl  in  an  other  tank  with  a  patch  of  UG.  UG  dry  start  was  a  failure  so  have  to  observe  what  happens  in  this  tank.

 I  have  found  that  TC  plants  are  pretty  good,  if  you  give  CO2  and  sufficient  lighting  they  grow  well.  Immersed  growth  does  not  do  well  in  a  dry  start,  but  the  hormone  loaded  TC  plants  grow  well.  Planting  Hair  grass  is  a  PITA  if  you  are  doing  it  in  tank  filled  with  water.

 Plant  growth  with  6500K  CREE  LED's  is  absolutely  fantastic.  All  plants  start  pearling  in  a  few  hours.  I  trimmed  the  hair  grass,  and  its  growing  back  well.  Full  4000-8400K  spectrum  Bridgelux  LED's  are  in  transit,  so  hopefully  I  will  be  setting  up  a  planted  tank  with  these  LED's  in  the  coming  weeks.
 
 Really  Interested  in  seeing  how  a  Dry  start  would  work  with  full  spectrum  chips  ...

 Nice  to  hear  that  plants  growing  good.  Could  you  please  specify  the  exact  series  of  cree  LED  using  ?  i.e.  Cree-XPE,  Cree  XME  or  any  other.  Please  share  the  link  to  purchase  &  tank  pics  as  well.  Thanks  in  advance  !

 Cree  XML  T6  is  the  one  I  am  using.  Search  on  Aliexpress  for  "cree  xlamp  xm-l2  xml2  t6"  lots  of  sellers.

 Hi  preeths,
 
 Can  you  please  share  your  experience  with  the  full  spectrum  led's.  How  was  the  plant  growth  compared  to  CREE  LED's.
 
 Also,  per  my  observation  full  spectrum  led's  seems  to  appear  pinkish  as  shown  below?  Dont  we  get  full  spectrum  in  white  light?

 Have  not  set  this  up  yet,  I  want  to  give  the  Cree  LED's  at  least  8  weeks  before  replacing  them.  The  new  LED's  are  have  not  arrived,  they  are  still  in  transit.  I  will  update  here  once  I  set  it  up.  the  Cree's  will  Continue  for  an  other  4  weeks  at  least.
