Default Recess Can lights

Has anyone had success growing plants with this type of light? I’m building a custom canopy for my 125.

I like them, I have installed plenty. However you may not get the desired results as the cut sheet of the fixture doesnt specify "full Spectrum". You'll also want a total between 9000 - 18,000 lumens total. (20-40 per liter) depending on the plants.
