Growth with seedlings is exponential. They more surface area for photosynthesis, the more energy they can make. I think in 2 weeks you will be more than pleased withthe growth. All the information you provided looks like you are making the right descions. :)
Hey Skimp thanks for the reply! Will see how things are looking in 2 weeks time.

Looks just fine for lighting schedule, i might question total distance of CFLs from plants tho...

CFLs suffer badly with the square law of light effect (diminish light energy over distance) & if above 6 inches from plants i would bring them close to around 3 inches.

Cfl's don't produve intense heat like hps/mh & quite safely be hung 1 inche from plant top... but i'd wait tad intill the girls have passed seedling/sprout stage before bringing lights that close.
