Don't smoke out of cans, bad for your health. . .
I suggest on investing in a 4 pack of the 100w light bulbs, they run at 26w each, or you could go get a few 150w light bulbs but the wattage put out and the wattage used is a much higher ratio on the 150's, I think they run at 40w each or something like that. 4 100w bulbs should be sufficient for what you are doing if you are doing a small closet grow. You can get them for 20 buck tops, generally cheaper, I've seen them for 10 bucks on sale. 2nd is your soil, make sure you buy some organic stuff, spend the money on FoxFarms or try to mix your own(that will save you money rather than the FF) but with organics you don't have to worry about flushing before harvest.

Go to the "Grow Journals" and read my journal... I use (x2) 42 watt clfs they are perfect for my micro grow and that is only a 17" 15" 14" room with reflective material around the room each 42 watt blub is the eqivilent to 150 watts.
