another CFL question

  1. Basically I have 9 plants under 7 - 26 watt 2700k CFL's and 4 - 26 watt 6500k watt CFL's which is 19250 lumens. I know more lights are always better when growing with them so should I get more of the 26 watts and fill some gaps or get a couple of some higher wattage CFLS and put them over the canopy?.The plants are growing amazingly and already stink up the house when I come in and they are not really that much into flowering yet!
  2. Not too bad, but I would suggest adding some more 2700K bulbs. Since you are in flower, you want more of that spectrum. You are at almost 300 watts, but for 9 plants, you will want it a little higher. Search out the 150w CFLs at Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. They are 43 actual watts, and would help add some juice in the right spectrum. Hope all goes well....
