    Autos I go up to 20/4. Phot I never go more than 16/8. Plants, even Autos, need time to rest. You will get healthier buds in the long run.

    Yes I have seen people go 24 hours on an auto but their plants to don't look happy to me. I am a believer that our plants tell us what they want, and I can't imagine they would ever want 24 hours of light. Especially a Photo

    Auto's 18/6 works best based on my expirments...You can use continous light but would only gain a higher power bill.

    18/6 regardless of auto or photos. 24/0 will shock mthem when you flip as they are not used to darkness and they could die as soon as you put them into 12/12. Plants have hormonal growth changes at night that you will be depriving them of. Someone had this very problem a few months ago.
