A few things I can tell you from what you've said there.

You need more than a single 120 wat flouresent light for the vegging/flowering stages, it will be alright (if close enough) for the sprouting process but after that it will just stretch towards the light as it wouldn't be giving enough lumens to make it grow out it will just be stretching towards the light.

flouresent lights don't give off much heat at all really, so they will need to be just a few inches away from the plant. Temps should be around mid 70s during the day but can drop to mid 60s during the lights out time.

Fan's shouldn't be directly focused on the plant itself, have it circulating around but at a decent distance.

Miracle grow anything is no good for MJ, you should get nutes which are more designed to grow MJ.



How big of a grow space are you actually growing in?

CG Gave the best advice so far, read, read, then read some more.
All I will add is it is get good genetics, make your environment as near to perfect as you can (water, ph, air, CO2, light, temps, humidity) get decent quality nutrition and learn what the plant is telling you. Simples!!!!!
Oh, and read!

Keep in mind that this is a product that goes for $300 an oz or so "retail". It is going to take far more than a 120W fluoro and a couple of fans blowing air around to grow some dank. It is going to take some studying (reading) and money (what is your budget?) to grow a plant from seed or clone through harvest.

The others have given you good advise. Learn what the plant is going to need and then set up a grow space based on the plants needs--not just what you have lying around. Unless you are in a nice temperate climate, it may be too late to put babies outside now--they are going to need at least 3-4 months to bring to harvest. How cold does it get in your neck of the woods? Does it freeze? When?

I can tell you that for inside, you are going to need way more/better light, you are going to need a good quality centrifuge type exhaust fan, you are going to need better nutrients, you need a good soil mixture....
