Autoflower under dual cfl

Hi just thought id post this to see if anyones had any experience with dual cfls? As in blue and red spectrum cfl , its my first grow using dual cfl 250watt and im growing cbd crack autoflower from fastbuds im at day 70 and was time to start flushing yesterday after looking under microscope , everythings gone fairly well just a little bit dissapointed in how the buds are looking there not amzingly big but are nicely frosted , im going to flush for prob 2 weeks so mayb more growth to come but just wondering if mayb the light is the issue and would it be better to get a red 300watt cfl for flowering instead of using the dual cfl all the way through? Any info or advice welcome :) cheers

Is 2 weeks too long i read that 2 weeks can be good to get the nutes out and used up in the plant completely it did seem quite long though? Thanks for reply.

search google for "oldtimer uk420 to flush" and read through what he has to say about flushing. That will fetch up a few threads but pay attention to what oldtimer says as iirc theres a few outstanding posts that clear the subject up
