How would a coralife fixture do for houseplants? 6700 / 10000 / 50/50?

Or are the "plant bulbs" at wal mart better? (Floro, not incandescent)

The reason I ask is I have a small portable greenhouse sort of shelving system and I start seedlings, etc on there for my cacao trees, clivias, etc. I was considering a coralife fixture for the unit. Right now I have floro units with "plant bulbs" in them.

Last winter the Mrs used my "just sitting there" Current USA orbit with 4 X 65 6700 & 10K bulbs, and she had her own indoor Herb garden, and seedling starter, that grew very well. I'm not sure if a different temperature bulb would have been better, but it worked very well.

I am looking at a single lamp fixture so I would be concerned with too much of a certain tempurature, but wanted to ask. Thanks for your input.
