Translation: It's my first Deluxe Halophosphor tube!
$12 at Ace Hardware.
It's more pink than I thought, And with lower lumens.
The funny thing is, It's better at rendering colors than my GU10 LED lights which light up my room.
This is the best you can do before getting into the ultra modern Multi-Phosphor zone.
And this isn't really a Plant & Aquarium tube, It's just a Deluxe Halophosphate.
Also, I tested this with my spectroscope, And it's a Halophosphate for sure.

Would this be suitable for general lighting?

-Yes, it's deluxe halo phosphate. It's also rather "flickery" when used on magnetic ballasts, just like a Chroma 50 would be (also deluxe halo phosphate). I'd still rather Chroma 50 or at least Cool White Deluxe for general use. (Cool White Deluxe is also somewhat pinkish-purplish in appearance when compared with Cool White and is "flickery". You'll notice reds and blues really pop under /PL/AG, whereas with Chroma 50 blues REALLY pop. With CWX, reds really stand out.

While intended for plant growth, they can be used for general lighting, I've seen it on many occasions. Usually in people's houses or really small home-based-type-shop-at-their-house businesses in cheap stoplights, not really in commercial settings.

Is the package original of the lamp? It writes that this is a lamp for plant growing and aquarium lighting, so it should have blue and red phosphors or high kelvin phosphors, and not deluxe halophosphors.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

It's original, I see lots of these in Lowe's and Ace Hardware.
I checked the spectrum and it looks like a halophosphate, but with more spectrum than would be good for plant growing.

Plant growing just need red and blue and not a continuous spectrum that also contains wavelengths that the chlorophyll reflects.
