I would have to agree about the posts that indicate a lack of controls
or a way to really measure the results of your experiment.
Howevr it does seem that there is a benefit to the dark
Although I am only on my first grow my research and my personal observations
suggest that the plants seem to benefit from the dark period after the seedling stage.
I also found the coments interesting as well about the the lower foilage growth
and ultimate yeild I am going to keep an eye on that aspect of it.
Good luck to all
time lapse video would be cool
This is definately the most realistic roll playing game ive ever played
and what about vertical lighting? right now i have all my baby plants in a phototron with 6 vertical 40 flouros and a shelf in the middle,.... my plants receive no light from over head all from the sides,..... and strain has got to have something to do with it too,.. right now the 2 3 oldest are, 2 skunk1's and , 1 north lights,... the skunks have very close nodes, less than a 1/2 inch, while the north lights is more stretched out and taller, like 1.5 inch nodes,..... plus i have a bunch of others in there started at different times,... big buds, and bbl gum started about a week or so ago,.. and ice, and sk1xthai maybe about 3 weeks old,....
you know i think instead of re marriage, i'll just find some woman who hates me and buy her a house!
if u want to grow, why wouldnt you just stick with how mother nature intended on the lite cycle for plants to be setup? plust 24/0 is pretty ridiculous, why would u ever want ur lite to be going ALL the time? id freak out when im not there, thats why i set it up to where im home when the lite comes on. hands down, 18/6 will outbeat 24/0 anyday of the week, its how nature intended it.
Dont worry,Im not gonna do what everyone thinks im gonna do and FLIP OUT MAN!..all i wanna know is whos comin with me?
Everything I say and post are lies!!!! MyGrow!!!!

Two indicas, two sativas, NL's and thai ss. Both from same mothers respectively. Two on 18/6 two on 24/0. The 24/0s grew faster. This is a true study not hearsay so listen don't listen but the dark time is not important in the first 2 months at any rate. Want fast do 24/0 want natural do 18/6 but the latter has not shown any advantages and that is that. Or should I do it 800 times to prove to the nuts that this is the best example you can get...
Wow i've never heard so many opinions stated as fact.
As stated, the dark photoperiod will promote growth, but not necesarily nodal formation. 24/0 will keep your plants more compact with an equal amount of budsites.
As for leaving your lights on for extended periods of time, if your growroom is wired properly than it shouldnt be a problem, if its not, then fuck you, everytime a house with a grow op burns down i shed a tear. If you're honestly not comfortable with having your lights on when you're not home than you probably need to sort your shit out before you can carry on as a marijuana grower. Sorry if that comes off as harsh, but its situations like that that lead to fires, and fires in growrooms make us all look bad.
why would u ever want ur lite to be going ALL the time? id freak out when im not there
At the end of the day of course, like most things, it comes down to personal preference.
This is just not necesarily true. And using nature as justification is fucking weak.
18/6 will outbeat 24/0 anyday of the week, its how nature intended it.
Nature wants spider mites to thrive right? Why don't we just introduce those into our growrooms? Or how about we simulate cloudy days by using weaker lights? Maybe simulate a drought or a windstorm every now and then?
I think we can unanimously agree that the sun is the best grow light there is. However theres more to it than that.
Regardless to weather you prefer 24/0 of 18/6 its proven that either way can be successful. Like most things in growing weed, there is no "right" or "wrong" If it works it works, and if it doesn't it doesnt.
Couldn't agree more. With this in mind, I will post a trial by OT1, who knows his shit pretty well. His results show pretty conclusively that 20/4 yielded better than either 18/6 or 24/0.

My first grow I did 12/12 from seed and basically tried my best to kill them, instead ended up with a bunch of dwarf females not even two ounces but the bagseed smoke was very good. I'm going 18/6 with my second grow. My plants are just over four weeks old and they amaze me every day. I have nine, four thc bombs, two caramelicious and three bagseed. They range in height from about five inches to a foot. I have no complaints and in the next week or so plan on starting the flowering process. I decided against 24/0, I couldn't think of anyplace on earth where those growing conditions are the norm. To each their own, as my mom used to say, that's why they make chocolate and vanilla.
