    Take a look at the plant size and tell me if this is enough light. Getting 1 40 watt 6500k clf next week and can get another if you think it is needed. What you think. There will be 3 real good high wattage soft white clf's for flowering and will still be using these along with it. Oh 1 more thing haha there will be a grow box to soon :) thanks first grow fyi.

    it's....ok i guess. Kind of thin looking and very green. Should be more nodes on there for the height.

    Looks pretty good to me. Do you need the Aluminum foil down the bottom? Your plant is pretty spread out and it looks like the light is going to reach the bottom leaves (which is what I assume the foil is for).

    Yh it will grow bigger
    Like a 30w clf has 2000 Lumen intensity (so it cant penetrate the bud deep enough thats why you get reli small buds)
    125w Envirolite cfl 12000 Lumen intensity (Envirolites can penetrate bud ok still not great but still with more light it will)
    a 400w hps has around 55000 Lumen intensity (hps will penetrate bud great up to 10 ft away)
