We've tried numerous on the market....82 days are the sweet spot for the majority of autoflowering strains.

THE DILEMMA - WHICH IS BEST, 18 OR 24 HOURS OF LIGHT?

Some like to take the middle ground, using a 20/4 light cycle.
Really, you do not want your autoflowering plants to receive less than 18 hours per day. This is the minimum, and anything less will adversely affect growth.

So, to summarize, every grower should do what best works for them. It is worth experimenting with both light cycles (on two separate grows), to see what gets you better results, and what suits your grow situation better. 24-hour lighting offers a little more potential, but it may not always be practical.

We've done a 1/2 dozen of side-by-side grows between 24/0, 20-4 and 18/6. No appreciable benefit (indoors) 24/0.

To each their own. After growing autos for almost 13 years, we've noted plants grow best under 20/4 or 18/6.

I think you misunderstood what I was saying.
I wasn't trying to explain anything and said exactly what I meant. It has nothing to do with HOW the grower chooses to grow the plant.


If a plant MUST have a dark cycle to flower, it is not an auto flower plant, it is a photo period plant.


If a grower wants to save a few bucks and grow under a reduced light cycle, that is their prerogative.

The plant is starting to flower finally! Do you suggest to change lamp now or wait? I use a lamp for vegetative state and another lamp for flowering
