This system doesnt really have any influence on the effects of the cfl's unless your taking into account the plant spacing. The table your building will have a square footage of about 5.4, I recommend roughly 55 watts per square foot. Your table will require roughly 300 Watts of lighting. Now this is the actual wattage and not the incandescent replacement wattage. I would say your going to need about 7 42 watt CLF's to provide the needed amount of light to grow those 16 plants on your table. Alternatively you can use 12 of the standard 26W CLF's. Hope that helps.
