18/6 or more daylight.

Whatever works for your life. I typically use 16/8 because I can shut down at 10 pm and start at 6 am which jibes with our schedules.

It really depends on strain…
I usually run a 18 on and 6 off because I had a strain that would start to flower with a 16 on and 8 off light cycle…
But now I’m almost to a huge turnover with strains that I might go back to a 16 on and 8 off light cycle…
Also I should add that I run lights in 3 1/2 hour increments with a half hour of darkness in between… helps with temps…only in veg…
