It must be interesting playing with a full spectrum camera. You mention the filter today, but don't say what you used yesterday. I am somewhat surprised at how similar the two are. Obviously the color, is different, but I would have expected different levels of detail, and perhaps other differences.

@Harry: This shot was with a red #25 (605nm) filter, white balanced on the flower. The previous shot was a UG11 ultraviolet filter 250nm-390nm. I just started playing with the UG11, but so far it isn't what I expected. It acts more like Infrared, but it's extremely slow. My shutter speeds are in the 1/8th-second range versus 1/500 for all of my other infrared filters. If you look back at the photos of the plum, you can see some difference between the Infrared and Ultraviolet, but like you said, very similar. You should give it a try if you haven't, I bet you would love the black and white Infrared

I have a converted infrared - I chose 720 nano-meter for its near B&W with the occasional opportunity to keep some hint of color to channel swap into blue. I have friends that chose 820/830 for pure black, which I respect, and others who chose 590 for more color options. While I have seen some excellent enhanced- or super-color IR, most seems too garish for my taste (NOTE - I said "for my taste"). And I have played with a borrowed 590 converted camera, and was not encouraged by my results. I keyword all my posts "color" "monochrome" or "Infrared" so you should be able to find my IR shots, if you are interested.
