Those bulbs sound great ...for growing pot!
Mushrooms on the other hand require just a little light to trigger morphogenesis. Some species need no light. Light does not provide the energy to produce food by photosynthesis as it does in green plants.
Also, bright light (100 w. for instance) is usually detrimental to mushrooms scince it is accompanied by excessive heat.

I don't see how a full spectrum bulb would be of any great benefit as most phototsensitive mushrooms require exposure to blue and ultra-violet light with distinct peaks at 370,440, 460 nanometers. So mthe red, infra-red, and green wavelengths that are greater then 510 nanometers serve no useful purpose.
