I just figure plants naturally get a dark period and that they would do better in dark so this makes sense
Absolutely - I see a major surge in that 36 hours darkness at start of flip and i am convinced that a lot of growth goes on in the darki can tell you that my plants grow 3" in 30 hrs of dark cycle when Im flipping to 12/12....i dont look at the roots but that should indicate something.
I use 6/2 cycle to veg and it's better than either growth wiseBtw. Have been doing some tests with 18/6 and 24/0
Didn't notice any difference between the plants grown under the different lighting regimes.
Perhaps a little more stretch under 18/6
Would love to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts about this
