    i vegged thru a whole veg cycle with 16/8 with no problems at all! they grew a bit slower tho but still good. i had 5 different strains in there and only good results.

    don't drop below 15 hours or you will trigger full flowering,

    16/8 is the right thing to do for veg people keep forgetting that plants need also night time to grow better

    ^^^CBB: I'm pretty sure thats not true; cannabis doesnt need a rest period unless it is in flower.

    OP: The extra darkness would just cause stretching I would think..

    Not true. They grow just fine or great with 24 hours of light.

    yeah i thought they needed a dark period as well for a long time but i guess they dont need one, comething about C2 plant or something...google it but it has something to do with the enzymes in a plant. not huge on biology so i cant be much more help here. i run 18/6 and have fine results and it lowers electricity charges.

    I also thought 24/7 was the best till i tried 18/6 and i do believe they do like alittle rest.Seem to grow better for me and i did 24/7 for atleast 4-5yrs.

    But to each his own lets not start another thread about the best photoperiod for Vegg.

    I don't think there is such a thing about "best photo period for veg". It's 18/6 or 24. Other than that one takes there own chances.
