Do Heat Lamps Suck?

    My interpretation of this chart is that you get more intense red frequencies from incandescent lights than from red lights. Is this correct?

    I believe the reason Ray recommends heat lamps, is that you can always increase the red amplitude by increasing wattage. But incandescents (and halogens) have too much blue (and UV).

    Oh, RP recommends heat lamps? I didn't know that.

    I guess what matters is the proportion of blue light, that it is as low as possible. Could a mathematician on the forum find the proportion of blue light from those graphs?
