To tell you the truth, i hadn't noticed the light times ...Sorry
I just took the first section (18hours) as germination and first week of vegging,,,and the next bit as the rest of the vegging period.
Like i said,, i dont usually follow guides...lol
Reading it carefully, it doesnt recommend a 12/12 veg cycle,,,it starts 12/12 at,,,quote,,,"vegative stage fast growth". The next stage after that is when flowers (buds) have started to show.
That 1- 3 weeks "veg stage fast growth" could be the period when you normally switch to 12/12,,, wait for buds to start froming,,,, and of course the stretch.
,,, but yes,,, 12/12 from the start would lead to a lower yield ~ a dam site lower.
