lighting for a planted tank.

Will the LED light hoods be sufficient to grow plants when tank is not always in direct sunlight?

Generally, any direct sunlight is not advised because it can cause algae issues.
It depends on what led it is, but some are sufficient for plants that only need low light such as anubias, java fern, and mosses.
