    You're correct, I've got 400 watts of bulb's on my grow.

    This is my first grow, I'm using cfl in a 2x2x4 grow tent. I've done everything wrong, root root, nut burn, and heat stress. I've got all those problems solved. The only other thing has been light distance. Thank you for clearing that up.

    Someone should unsticky all the fluoro threads.

    Hasn't anyone wondered why this garbage technology still has it's own section while leds are in the "and other" section?

    Make this the "other" section. Noobs shouldn't be pointed toward CFL anymore....

    raise them up a couple of inches, cfl is basically a ball lighting, make sure a fan is going across the tops between the bulb and plant, that should take care of that heat stress, need to keep air moving with heat, move cooler air in as the heated air goes away...

    for someone who doesn't have much money and wants to start growing, cfls are ok to go with, in time as cfls go away from the stores and such, move over to led bulbs.

    my setup cost me less than 80 bucks to build, and i've done many grows with them
