Yea It would be awesome if they did work.
The need for UVA - UVB only applies if your housing day (diurnal sp?) species. Nocturnals don't need it.
Also about the plants that you use. Lighting reguirements vary from Plant to plant. Some do better with direct sunlight others indirect diffused. Plants don't need UVA - UVB.
With this type of Light you could highlight a specific plant.
