Seed starting w/ CFLs

Seed starting w/ CFLs

When I was growing up, my mom always started her seeds in a sunny window. I tried that last year, and my plants got really, really leggy. This year, I want to supplement them with a light. CFLs are on sale for $.99 each at my local hardware store right now, so I was thinking of getting one or two cheap clip on lights and using CFLs. Is there a reason this won't work? If I'm supplementing their light, I'll put them in a west-facing window instead of a south-facing one.
