    im building a separate clone / mother room I plan to keep the clones in the room for a few weeks but they will be only 4 inches tall and just topped with 4 tops ready to go into my veg room.

    Would I be able to get away with 1 cob per sq foot running at 17w each, total 34 cobs On a hlg-600h? Cobs would be citizen 1212 v6.

    The mothers would also be under the same lights and I'd need some decent growth on them to get about 50 clones at a time after 5 weeks of growth.

    Is this enough watts or should I up it to 2 x 600h's and 34w each?

    17W/SF for clones is more than enough

    What about for the mothers? Do you reckon 17w per square foot would get enough growth on mothers for 50 decent clones in 5 weeks of growth topped several times and kept short?

    Yes more than enough, they will grow faster than that you will need to cut them back.
