Which of these bulbs are best for plants?

I have a somewhat heavily planted tank and I'm wondering which two bulbs would be best - even if they are the same bulbs.

Take a look at this site: http://www.juwel-aquarium.co.uk/Prod...csv49vfdbuafc5

..and tell me what you would choose for vigorous plant growth, and why?

P.S. I dose the EI way with pressurised CO2 so that the drop checker is lime green.

I would choose the High-light Colours, because the color temperature is a little above 6500K, approximately natural sunlight. You need to find out if it's normal output or high output. If you get too much light in there, you will have to inject CO2 or do something to reduce the light.

The High Light Day, Nature, or Color should all work ok for the plants. You will probably prefer how the tank looks with one or a combination of those three, so that would be a good way to choose them.
