Odds are it didn't come with a 6500k light. You should look to replace it with one that is definitely 6500k. At least if you want to have happy plants. I swapped out my 10000k light for a 6700k and most of my stems grew 4" in a week.

Change the light to a proper plant light or it will be an algae farm. Also try reducing the photoperiod.
