  1. i got two 23w CFLS in like a 1 1/2 by 2 box how many plants could grow under that light ?
     
  2. barely one if you keep it hella short. If they are just seedlings a few.
     
  3. yeah there just seedlings now got 3 of them and then they will be moved into bigger space in flower. when should i add more lights?
     
  4. Definitely if you plan on having 1-3 plants, generally 10k lumens per a plant.
     
  5. even if its in a small space with reflective walls? and how many weeks should i wait too switch lights
     
  6. How big is your flower area going to be? Most people start flowering between 12-18 inches. With cfls the shorter you keep the plant the better because they don't have much light penetration and the further away light diminishes very quickly. You don't have to have 10k lumens (more of a benchmark) but the less you have the lower the yield will be. Also plan on lsting your plants to keep them short.
     

  7. i was going to use a regular size closet and i wont being using CFLS the hole time just during veg i was going to switch too HPS Bulbs then.
