  2. Well... Yes this is the wrong section.

    I believe that clones won't bear seeds.

    As for lighting, I'm not really sure, check out the growing section under cultivation.
  3. you can use cheap CFL lights for a plant.

    A clone is an exact replica of the plant it came from, if it was a female plant, then the plant will be female.

    Go down to the "absolute beginners" forum.

    If the clones are already established, then they are rooted and ready to grow. They will develop into an exact copy of the mother plant. This garuntees a female, which is one of the primary reasons people do it.

    Another reason is to preserve and propagate exceptionally ideal specimines. Generally speaking, people don't pick just any plant to clone, so you are usually going to get something above-par.

    Cheap and effective? For a single plant?

    2X 5600K ('Daylight') 42watt CFLs.
    3X 2700K ('Soft White') 42watt CFLs.

    Buy them at any store, from WalMart to a home building center. Go with a brand name. Phillips is good. You should replace CFLs after 6 months of use to avoid diminishing returns as the light spectrum wanes.

    That entirely depends on your growing medium, method, and investment in fertilizers, etc.

    I suggest you Google the following, “strain grow journal.” (“Strain” should be replaced with the strain you plan to grow.) This will reveal many grow journals featuring various methods. You can pick the least expensive and most productive, as proven out by other growers.

    For an example, check out TasteBuds first grow:

    If you've not yet decided on a strain, I might suggest an auto. They tend to be more beginner friendly. Check out the link in my sig for an example.
