I just discovered something very promising. So called "new full spectrum LEDs". They promise a similar good spectrum for plants but are not fully plant focused like the usualy "full spectrum LEDs" which radiate a pinkish red color which is really not something you wanna have in your home unless you really love that color.

So what I did so far is mix every full spectrum LED with a standard cool white LED.
This product now seems to combine the two in one package and just add enough green and blue to make it a comfortable light color. Right now they cost a bit more but that would be very well worth it.

While the solution I have works, its not perfect, in certain light angles you get fringes of pink when the light hits the wall around the plant and you don't have a lamp shade on.

The "no harm to eyes" should not be mistaken as an actual harm to your eyes, more in the sense of, it looks really bad...
