Lights

I have always kept my plants from seed to about half the height that I want them under 24 hours of light . Is there any scientific evidence showing that a 18/6 schedule is more beneficial to the girls ? I know some of you know just from experience .

      • I've used 24, and 18/6 both for veg. The only real difference is a slightly smaller light bill.

        • google "circadian rythm in plant lifecycle", then you'll understand why plants need a rest period for a properly functionning metabolism

          • when I first started growing inside, I would use 24/0 light cycle for Veg, but I found the plants grow fine on the 18/6 cycle!  Except when growing Autos then 18/6 all the way.

            • I have grown the dreaded awful flowers with photo periods and I dont think I could have gotten  anything extra out 18/6 after they started flowering. Well other than what RbtAsq said. lol That would be a great experiment if they ever stabilize the damn things so 2 are the same phenotype
