For my next Grow Im going to try Floros during Vegg for the first time I usally use a 250 watt HPS and that does good but looking for a change this time Iv collected two 15 watt rod floros with a high blue coler content and One 26 watt CF thats 56 watts altogether Is that enough for 8 plants or do I need a couple more?

that should be plenty of light to vegg with. i would forget the incandecant lamps. they put out more heat than lumens. more fire hazard. put you money in the flowering lights and not somuch in vegg lights.

you should be fine with that. just let that succer vegg and keep your lights as close as possible to eliminate stretching. less stretch = tighter buds.
