    no expert here but that seems like some potential hot/dry conditions. Correct me if I'm wrong but a 40w cfl = about 150w regular bulb. Having two of those and 2 24w cfl = 75w regular bulbs seems like a lot of light and possibly a lot of heat without proper ventilation. I think pictures of your planned setup would help greatly with members helping you out....

    Greg, You count CF's as 40 watt, never what they're supposed to look like to the human eye. You'd consider it to be 64 watts.

    Well regarding the lights so many factors are there. The distance from the plants also matters. which kind of lights are used also matters.Here the intensity of light and the voltage also need to be taken care of.
