light cycles?

  1. what light cycles should i use for each stage and how long do i use these cycles for the best grow in my closet
  2. i used 18/6 for veg then 16/8 a week before i wanted to flower then 12/12 for flowering. some people go 24/0 for veg. you can veg the plant as long as you want. but rember when you switch it to flower the plant will grow 2-3 times bigger then it is at the end of veg. i started to flower mine at 13 inches. now 2 weeks into flowerig it is almost 24 inches. so make sure you have the room and lights for it
  3. ok thanks with all the tips im getting i think ill be able to grow a good crop my first time
  4. depends what you prefer, you can do 24/0, 20/4, or 18/6 ... I like 18/6 because it cost's a lot more in energy with a high wattage light system to keep it running at all times.

    then obviously 12/12 for flower
