I'd start with a 1/2 CTO and see where that gets you, but I doubt grow-lights will have the same spectrum so you'll also need a color meter and probably some + or - green. would be easier to swap out bulb if at all possible.

I dont have a meter.
Maybe ill get a dp to look at it on set.

Osram says it has good colour rendering.

7200K to 5600K is a 39 Mired shift. So you would be looking at a 1/4 CTO to start with.
