@Countryboyjvd1971 is there a thread where you and @latewood discussed this?
I grew my last Auto with the 14/10 schedule worked great finished off the grow in 57 days woohoo
I’ll be doing gold leaf under the 14/10 for veg as well
@latewood explained it to me basically it closest schedule to sunlight and @Hogmaster suggested I try it and I’d did
I’ll be using the 14/10 schedule from now on works great Imo
It’s not hard to agree that running 18 hours of light for an extended time isn’t natural. But how does light intensity and spectrum play into that? I’m seeing several grows that are implementing a far red light for very short period of time at the beginning and/or end of the light cycle. Reports are that doing so aids in the plant “waking up” and “going to sleep” faster. Do you know if there’s any truth to this?
How about the light intensity provided? I’m wondering if we should be in the opinion that if we provided more light during lights on, that we would benefit more from a longer dark cycle? As opposed to say a much lower light intensity being more beneficial to run them a little longer?
Or should we now be dropping everything we’ve done up til this point, and start going in the direction of lights using dawn to dusk controllers? That’s about as close as we’ll get to replicating natural lighting as of right now. I’m just not sure if it’s the cats a$$ or another led marketing ploy.
