why not just go and get a larger cfl from a grow shop? you could get a reflector with it to maximize the light.

Give me the bat wendy!

I've read everything from 2000-5000 lumen/square foot, most suggesting closer to 2000.  Since each of those bulbs puts out 2700, one bulb per square foot of floor space should be plenty, if spread out evenly.

You've got almost 140w of CFL light for one plant, you will be fine. For maximum effect, hang the 42w bulb over the top of the plant and the 23's arranged in a square around the sides of the plant (all bulbs within 2" but not touching). Good luck
