Default Re: Grow light recommendations?

I built my grow light. 8 x 23 watt cfl's (100 watt equivalent) gives me 800 watts of light. Watts isn't the best way to measure but it gives you a ballpark idea.

With that light through winter I was getting 1 new leaf every 3- 4 days and it costs me about 5$ Canadian a month to run. I'll try to post a pic later but if you can't wait I posted the pic in another thread about a year ago.
So far:
Dwarf Cavendish -- Basjoo -- Bunch of Truly Tiny
