I see there are some household light manufacturers (not aquarium lighting)
claiming they have full spectrum bulbs, and they say the way they achieve
that is by absorbing yellow wavelengths. Is that just a trick to our eyes
(i.e., aesthetics; my suspicion) or is there something to that claim (e.g.,
would they be beneficial to house plant growth)?
