Question about plant lights?

I am making a custom LED lights and I am including some plant lights to help out my java ferns, and maybe in the future, some additional plant.

The manufacturer has two plant lights and I am not sure which ones i need.

5050 LEDs or the lower 3528?

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

Atena :)

With lights for plants, you want full spectrum for colour and specific lumens. In my 5G planted tank, I use a 6500 lumen, 15watt bulb.

Not sure what you're looking for in the LEDs, though. The 5050s seem to be brighter in all colour ranges than to the 3528s
