Uhhh, well ur flouros aren't probably getting the job done. I'm sure people have had decent results with them but really they can't touch HID lights.

For flowering you'll definately want to switch the spectrum of the bulbs out to a more red color.

With that small statement nobody really knows where you might have gone wrong honestly.

Are you feeding them anything?

It looks like it's going to be another Gravity Bong type day...

if you use that halogen light you are just making one of the biggest fuck ups a newb grower can make. a halogen bulb/light is just basically a giant resistive heater, wrong spectrum (monochromatic like) and just plain out not good.

the cfl's arent bad, not at all, though like said above cant touch a HID bulb.  but......with the heat beign very minimal with the cfl's and able to be placed quite a bit closer to plant canopy, it kind of almost evens out.

there is a book by seemore buds, called "grow 8 .oz of bud for under 100 bucks" heres a link http://www.amazon.com/Marijuana-Buds-Less-Grow-Than/dp/0932551874

uses like 5 or so low wattage cfl's and 2 plants, and ges 8 oz of bud for cheap.  so there it shows it can be damn respectable, and has been done.

and he only used some cheapo soil and water only.

you dont have to absolutely change to a red spectrum in flowering, it is not a make or break thing, you may get a little more yeild, but not enough at this point in your growing career that would justify the cost of more lighting systems/ bulbs.

get a few good crops under your belt, using basic nutes, and then start playing with booser, different lighting etc.

probably what is happening is that in veg you are feeding light, cuzz they are young, or small, or just whatever, i feel you are feeding light and nice.

and then flowering hits, you start giving them the flowering nutes, way strong or too often back to back hoping to make them pack on the buds, then they get burned, or lock out of nutes in soil, or microlife dies off and ph gets out of whack and wammo, dead plants.

it is better to feed not nearly enough than to feed just a tad too strong.

id pick some bottled nutes up, organic, like general organics BIO THRIVE LINE, it is veganic, and very very very hard to overfeed and fail with these nutes.
