    Curious why you chose those? Like green doesn't really help plants but we see it.....why not any reds or blues? What are you trying to achieve I guess is my question.

    I know their premade combos have high(er) CRI's.

    If you look at the temperature outputs of the whites, you'll notice that warm white actually puts out more light than the CWs and NWs. Using the WW alone will give you a reddish tint, but supplementing it with RBs and UVs will increase the temperature to be more cool. The blue bands of the whites are all the same.
