You need following items to make DIY Leds:
1. Heat sink strips
2. Thermal Greece
3. Driver
4. LEDs 3 watt
5. Star PCB

For medium light plants 2 strips of 20 Leds will be enough.

Hi any particular reason why 6500K LED battens are not preferable to DIY. There are at least two high efficiency 100Lumens/W models available. One is a 2ft 18W Eveready 1800Lumens (100LM/W) and the other is a 4ft 22W Wipro 2400LM (>100LM/W)
