Default Urgent Light Bulb Question!

Got a question for y'all. I have an included light bulb that is 1-10,000K and 1-460nm actinic. I know this kindda bulb is mainly used for marine tanks, but is it also feasible on planted tanks? If not then I will have to shell out another $25 just to get a 6500K bulb. Let me know what you all think ASAP; thanks!

2nd question is, would 10,000K work for growing plants? I have another fixture that uses two bulbs, one of which is 10,000K and the other is actinic. I know I will have to get at least one bulb for this fixture to replace the actinic, but what about the 10,000K? Save it or get another bulb with lower K(ie 5000-6700K)
