You'll get far less sarcastic answers here.

thats more than enough wattage for 1 plant, but a Hight pressure sodium light would produce 5x better than cfls.

You are not going to get much yield with one plant grown under cfls and fluorescent lights.


Get a HPS.

Have you changed it to 12/12 yet?

Well lets hope it is not a male plant.

I would seriously get a HPS 400watt.

You can grow more plants. That way if a few turn out male it is not a total loss becase you will still have some female plants.

Well cfls dont produce much heat, and heats good for pot, creates humidity.

yea but you dont want too much humidity or the plant wont create as much resin becuase it wont try to protect the flowers from drying out.

That is cool. You lucked out.

Meh, I suppose you deal with what you have.

What Lode said is right though, you will get more responses in the Marijuana grow forums.

I am very familiar with growing I just am not in that forum much.

Wish you success with it and happy smoking.:)

Yea they work but you get better yields with MHZ or HPS.

I always go for production. (If I grew. I am all innocent:) )

I've relocated this thread to a forum more dedicated to the topic.

Peace.
