Question 2 halogen 1 cfl and 2 floresent

Hi I'm new to this site. IV done alot of research online and figured I could get better help by joining a group. So I'm trying to use 2 halogen bulbs with 1 cfl and 2 blue spectrumed florescent bulbs. How well would this work for for good even growth?An would itit be OK to use the halogen for a few days then switch back to led in place of them?

What are you trying to grow? What are the wattage's? And how are they spaced?

It's confusing because You also say "switch back to led", but you never mention LED before that? What type of LED. What LED wattage's? And how are the LED's spaced?

P.S.
Do you have any pictures of your setup?

I'm attempting to grow indoor strawberrys and plan on starting tomatoes in a hot house. I started out with 2 led 1 cfl and the 2 florescent. I changed the led out for the halogen. Ill have to post in the morning the watts. I do know I'm using over 3000 lumens in a 16 sq foot area. Only one strawberry plant in the grow area right now. The lights are spaced about 4 inch apart and 24 inch above the plant. The florescent is about 3 inches away from the sides of the plant.
Thank You in advance for the advice and help and I will post the watts tomorrow.

Have you found out the wattage's yet?

You said 2 LED, but you didn't say what type.... You also said 16 sq ft, so I'm assuming it's a 4 foot by 4 foot space, and the only thing your growing under artificial light is one strawberry plant. So I'm guessing this is basically just an experiment since one strawberry plant isn't enough to get enough strawberry's from to even make one strawberry shortcake with.

P.S.
Will the hot house be using natural light?
