Always keep CFLs 1-4 inches away from your plants. Veg you want to avg 80-120 watts per plant. Flowering you want to avg 110-150 watts per plant. More is always better for bigger yields and faster grows.

100 watts per plant and 50 watts for each additional plant....As hg420 said more is always better....;)...A good idea as the plant grows is to add more cfl's around the lower(center) part of plant as cfl's need to be closer (4-6") for larger buds and a good yield as compared to hid...
For vegging use 6400K and for flowering use 2700K cfl's.

A 100watt CFL would put out more lumens than that. It's probably like 18-26watt.
