    Well when you first plant them it doesn't matter if you have the lights on or off. Once they sprout and get their first leaves you need to start your light cycle.

    80 Sq ft. 2-1K watts HPS or 3 or 4-600wHPS. I currently use 1KW HPS in 32 sq ft.

    no reason to put sprouts in the dark. An HID may be too much fer em though if it's too hot...

    you have HID lamps, florescent? Make sure the lights far enough away not to cook the little ones.... and close enough that they get the light...

    Re: Fastest way to flower?

    i grew 4 plants 12/12 under a 600w HPS.. I would never do it again. I got about 3/4oz combined from all 4 plants. I don't think it's worth it. They stretched horribly too and started flowering at like 3 nodes, so there wasn't much plant for the buds to form on. If you don't want to veg long, at least veg for 2-3 weeks to get a decent amount of nodes. I wouldn't flower until your secondary branches are starting to grow nicely.

    Re: Fastest way to flower?

    if i start the plants on a different light schedule and then switch over to 12/12 will it be bad for the plant?

    The buds will not be as potent, fast does not mean quality. I would take time to veg them out so they get enough resources to built the foundation for sticky big buds. Then again, if time and space is limited I guess this method will give you a taste, but I'm afraid you will be missing out on the full ride.
    I'm a 100% vegan (no animal products or dairy).

    you can do this. As long as the plants see more light than darkness in a 24hr period, they will continue to grow bigger and not flower.
