    2 SMALL mothers, or 4 clones for ~ 2 months. At ~ 5 weeks the plant's girth will require a wider light spread, so add another 4ft @ 4 bulb fixture + bulbs

    Look into Bonsai mums. I keep 2 of those 6 clones and 2 vegging plants under my t5 4 bulb

    Bigger the better then u never have the problem of not having enough light. I use 6 bulb T5 and 8 bulb T5 both have 2 switches. So u can run full or 50%
    Single bulb T5 is just useless. Especially for what your trying to do.

    T5s with the right canopy control can produce some really nice results.
    Made a few runs with them from start to finish..

    I have a 8 bulb Quantum Bad Boy. It has 2 switches, but I can also simply unlock one bulb and the adjacent bulb turns off, meaning, I can run 2 at a time
