Depends on how many lumens you are pushing already. Personally, being a CFL grower, I would use both if you can handle the heat in your grow are. Though CFLs are normally cool, the red-spectrums are a bit warmer and more light means more heat. Remember that CFLs for flowering normally give you buds that arent that dense. Adding more light will remedy that a bit but any little bit helps.

I've looked online and found the cool whites (veg) and the warm whites (flower). I also found full spectrum CFL's. Is this a combination of spectrums and therefore better for flowering?
