CLF question

  1. I'm back with yet another question. I've decided to use CFL lamps and currently I'm sprouting some bag seed under a 100w 5500k daylight CFL. Now I need to get a bunch more CFL bulbs to finish the job, I plan on getting some more of these daylight CFL bulbs I already have but I need to know what to get for flower. The store near me only had boxes that said nothing or daylight. Looking around online I see full spectrum, warm white, and cool white. So out of those three what should I purchase for flowering stages?
  2. its better just to have a mix of 5500k (Daylight) and 2700k (Soft White) bulbs for vegetatng then doubling the number of 2700k bulbs during flowering.

    P.S.: A 100W(eq) CFL only dissipates 23W of power. Recommended minimum light I believe is 100W per plant, which means you'll need four of those CFL's for each plant, for flowering.
  3. The CFL bulbs use only 23 watts of electricity but output a large amount of lummens compared to incandescent bulbs right? I assume having one 23 watt CFL per plant during veggie and one between each plant to get the sides should be enough. So if I buy full spectrum am I getting a mis between a soft white and a daylight bulb?
