Help building a led grow light

Hello family, im thinking about building a led light for side lighting to go with my hid’s. What is a good led diode? I want 2-300 watts. What types of diodes are good but cheap? Do i need a separate driver? Can i use 2-100 watt drivers? How would i wire it all together? Im a noob when it comes to led. Please help! Any and all input is welcome. Thanks fam!
