    I'm using leds. Stevesleds.com sells Luxeon Rebel ES leds for about $3 each and mounts them on 3up stars for another $1. Priority mail shipping to boot.
    The ES series is second only to luxeon M leds; he also sells royal blue M leds which are 5x the power at 4x the cost. No red M leds though.

    I use his leds to light my terrarium. 44 gallon pentagon with the lights 12" from the plants, and 90w of red and blue leds grow and flower them fine. Cost me about $200 to set up, but it's way better than the ebay fixtures you can buy.

    Ime a D120 can grow the most light demanding corals through over 2' of water. Although I've never used one to grow terrestrial plants, I think it would just be a matter of how large an area it can cover with the intensity you desire. You would probably lose quite a bit of the efficiency advantage of LEDS by running all those white emitters which produces a lot of light unusable to plants.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
