CFL Club!

For those of us that can only or chose to use CFLs. Theres no min or max of Watts. So share your experinces an show your setups and what you yeild. ill go first i run a grow box with 550w of CFLs, i use 5000k for veg an 2700k for flowering. i harvest 6-8 oz every 4 months, i veg for two an flower for another two. i will either lst or sog, perfer lst easier to manage a couple of mosnters then 20 small ones. pics are welcome but i dont have a digital camera.

on THIS website, there are some cheap high wattage VEG CFL's, for pretty cheap.


My cab is only 71 watts, because I can't find anywhere to get Warm White CFL's.

I'll be putting the link to my thread in my sig.

EDIT: RESPONSE TO YOUR REPLIES BELOW

I can't buy anything online =/ I don't have a credit card, and even if I could buy things online my parents would freak out if I got a package and they didn't know what it was. They would think I bought a bong, or something like that. I would have replied, but it's telling me that I can't post more that 10 replies.

I've never seen CFL's that big, how many lumens ? Is 300 watts the equivalent, or the actual wattage ?
