Either one will grow plants, so it comes down to a question of which you
would rather view the plants with.  I think most people find the light
from a GE PL/AQ bulb to be not to their liking.  I find it rather yellow
and other people may have other descriptions.  The "sunlight" bulb
produces what I perceive as white light.  I have sunlight bulbs
side-by-side with much more expensive vitalites and I can't detect much
difference between their colors.
