True and not true, plants are "More sensitive" to red and blue but will grow just fine in any color spectrum, a plant under "Designer -Glo" bulbs will grow just the same as a plant under a "household floro". Kelvin nowadays is more of a sales pitch than a actual fact. So to sum it up you can use any light you want as long as the wattage is enough for what you are grwoing. in terms of java fern i gurantee what you have is more than fone for them.
