IMO though the plants really love that 6500 K wavelength even though they are okay with the 4000K LED I got.... I will be more patient next time and find an LED with the 6500 K which I believe is best for what I'm doing - greens and seedlings.

The pictures you posted are proof positive, thats for sure.
