  1. ok since flowering is 12/12 could you flower with 24light/24night or 48/48, what would be the advantages or drawbacks to this. havent tryd it or anything just wondering
  2. No. By that logic if you sleep 7 hours a night couldn't you just stay awake for 5 straight days and then sleep for 2 straight days? It's the same amount of sleep in a week but it will kill you.

    Cycling through 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark triggers hormonal changes in the plant, it's not just a matter of dividing the total time in half. There are some variations on these specific numbers that some people adhere to, but nothing like what you are asking about. The 12/12 cycle simulates the onset of Fall, which is when the plants need to procreate before they die.
  3. Thanks for answering that question. i was wondering the answer to that for a long time.
