You should'nt have to veg for that long to get a quarter pound per cloney.

But for the money you spend on those cfls you could have got a 250W HPS from insidesun.com with ballast hood reflector pre wired!

Using cfl's can reduce your harvest weight. I wouldn't bet if you had 100 watt cfl on one plant that you would get 2 ounces. If you had a metal halide or hps this will raise your harvest weight.

Well Topping and all that, screen training and stuff thats up to you,

But remember that might increase your yeild but dramaticly slows the growing time, Start experimenting with these techniques after your first grow is successful.

But yes after you gain experience, top a plant at least once so that you can say your have and see what happens for yourself. To reduce the amount of pain you cause the plant the best technique in Fiming, You should be able to find information on it here.
