As a low budget newbie grower I was swamped with info on growing with varying opinions on the subject. but this is my account from my experience. LIGHTING I started with 1 seedling under (2)32w = (4)bulbs fluorescent lamps (alternating 6500k cool white/2700k warm white). I paid mayb $25 total. I also flowered a small clone under (2)16w 2700k warm white cfl's. Pistils showed at apx 1 1/2 weeks, with alot of stretching. Under these same lights i also rooted 4 clones.
