I am a little new to hydro, so I was wondering if someone could tell me if the lumens from a group of lights can be added as a whole, or if I have 5 lights (cf's) that produce 400 lumens each, do I have 2000 lumens, or do I have just 400?

yeah man cfl are the BEST way to grow.
they SMOKE all other lights in cost and in quality or weight!! first there is the heat isue none for cfl, it will cost you 26w for every 100w. so i use 1000w per m2. (3 foot bt 3 foot) you can set the light right on top of the plant as long as they dont contact with the plant. use them with scrog style grow and u get about 10oz-13oz per plant (with say ak 47 or something like that) hydro all the way !!! love the site just found it!
