I was also interested by this method but after some researches it seems
that this system is not ready to be the best in artificial condition as
defined. In fact it seems that for having a good result it is necessary
to multiply the led system to obtain a good power of light. It seems
too that there is a problem with the surface lighted and necessary to
increase the number of led then. All this remarks give a cost of
install by this system relatively hight.
So for the moment, and this system interested me, I have not choice it
and prefer some fluocompact lights ; It is easy to find some light with
special temperature of colour and the power is interesting too. I use
lights of 6500°K for 23W and 1500 lumens. I have completed too my
system by a 2700°K for 30W. I have not finished in totality the test
but for the moment the plants seem appreciate and for the moment all
the lights give an equivalent about 300W than in reality I use 76W. I
have recorded some data by sensor for PAR and 660nm and 730nm in
comparison with conditions in a greenhouse.
A problem, the red colour. This type of light has not enough. So I
think that it could be very interested to find a solution to complete
the spectrum of light by this ray to obtain a good quality of light.
For the moment I test some different plants under this artificial
lights and orchids, ferns do not present problem ; about araceae as
Anthuriums a small etiolation is present for certain species and more
for the young form, but I have some A.trinerve which have made their
first flower without problem.
I envisage to complete my system by grolux neon for the red colour in
waiting to find a good system of artificial light, and at the finish I
think that I will use about 100-110W for more than 340W in equivalence.

Anyone have experience with LED growlights? From what I've
googled, they appear low energy use and maintenence, low heat
production and efficient wavelengths for photosynthesis. Down side is
high initial cost and unnatural appearing color.
Any experience out there?
