Hummm, new one on me so I had a look around and apparently yes you can use this type of lighting for your plants. It appears that it may well also prolong the growing/flowering life of your plants :)

If you try it, let me know how you get on I would be interested to learn about it :)

Hope this is helpful

You can get specialised 'daylight' or plant UV bulbs from some suppliers. And they use little energy. Look on Amazon for daylight bulbs, or the rest of the web if you want florescent strips. Like most lighting they come in various 'frequency's of light.
It depends on the plant as well, some thrive on lots of light, others will tolerate shade.
