Here's some 411 on 630 & 660 from one who seems to know "Couple that with strong white light (green-response chlorophyll extending throughout and deep into leaf structures, with a net effect at or near that of the (mostly) surface-level blue and reds), which also takes care of most of the ~660nm+ you actually need for photomorphogenesis - and you can get by with 630nm reds just fine.
(i.e. 630nm red is ~95% of the PSR of 660nm, AND they currently still have ~20-30% greater radiometric efficiency - as well as being cheaper than the deep reds - so there's more 'bang for the buck')"

i decided on the apollo 8. Im gettung 2 of them. true 270 watts each. they are $238 each . So $476 + $165 shipping. the rep i talked to Mr. Liu. said mid to end of august they will have a switch for veg to flower or both. i might wait til then. I don't know if that will up the price. I probably don't even need it. I'm only going to be flowering with these. later after that Im a get an apollo 6 ($189) for my moms.
