    400-600w HPS ftw on this one. But, you could add some cfl's to help out the lower growth if you want heh. =)

    for 60 plants the cost of cfls would not stand up to cost benefit it would be cheaper to buy high grade smoke and not worry about growing it . for the amount of light that you are talking you would need atleast 1000w. but i digress i think you should do it seeing is believing.

    Thats a pretty hefty grow man. thats nearly 4 pounds.

    You are going for 1800 grams.

    Now for a gram/watt ratio. People that know what the fuck they are doing. Seemingly more than you (no offense).
    1 gram/watt is very good. I'd say .5 gram to watt for a few grower or just the average grower.

    Now with this said you are looking for at minimum 1800 watts. Safer would be closer to 4000 watts.
