CFL light recommendations

How many 100 w cfl bulbs should be in a 2x4x6 closet and what spectrum? Veg and flower??

Veg 5000 kelvin, flower 2700 Kelvin how many for that area roughly 10-12, just my opinion, so remember you need 50 watts per sq ft

Is it good to mix a couple 2700k in during veg? Or strictly 5000k? And vice versa for flower?

My opinion it wouldn’t matter to mix a couple in maybe one for every 4 lights of the 5000 kelvin

Ok, still have 2 of the 5000k or all 2700
