    High!
    Got confirmation by breeder "STITCH", Super-Auto under artificial lights do best @ 18/6 and in week 7/8 you could drop to 14/10.
    Peace!

    Another excellent thread but frustratingly open ended.
    I found this thread and thought 'aha, a sticky, that will have the definitive answer'
    But, alas, there is no definitive answer, only many personal preferences all with their own 'proof in the pudding'
    If I have the opportunity soon I shall wait until I have 2 identical phenos at sex stage and shall completely cover one of them for 12 hours whilst leaving the other on my usual 24/0.
    This should iron out a few variables while using the 2 ends of the lighting recommendations, the maximum amount and the minimum, there would be still of course be many variables and as such the results would not give a definitive answer, that would take hundreds of tests on many different strains etc but it would least give a meagre insight into the possible variations different light cycles could produce.

    I opt for 20/4 gets alot of light but also some rest time which I feel is important, and do plants like an even number of hours light lol? Noone ever seems to go for 19/5 or 17/7?

    Seen a few that claim to do 19/5.
