    You should hook them up and put your fucking plants under them and see what the fuck happens.

    Are you expecting a grams per watt rating base off your CFL choice in early grow?

    Or did you come here to talk shit.

    Yeah they look a bit far away to me. I'd go with like 4x as many.

    Or a 250w - 400 w mh

    Or build yourself some strip leds.

    How are your stems? Much stretching going on?

    You should rotate your plants daily, and raise your little plants up higher, closer to the light.. Maybe 12 inches away max

    I suggest you go this route with the led bulbs... 20180210_235215.jpg
    Diffuser removed. Works very well in my space.

    I replied in his other thread suggesting he look into constructing a reflector made from aluminum foil roasting pans that have many cfl bulbs jammed into it (limited budget friendly). And have...like...3 of them. 18 bulbs total in 3 DIY made cfl bulb reflector pans.

    There's a post somewhere here in RIU about how using a few hanging cfl bulbs is wasteful and inefficient.
    He goes on to say that, with hanging cfl bulbs, you need them within an inch of the plants leaves. Your light is way far away to get any absorption of light to each leaf.

    It's not a bad thing how you're doing it, but not the best way to get the most stoney weed.
