    You mean 12hrs of light follow by 5.5hrs of dark follow by 1hr of light follow by 5.5hrs of dark and then repeat the cycle ? Nope !! I do 18/6 for photos and soon 20/4 for autos. Here where I live electricity cost is not an issue.

      I agree Farmbuck, when I first saw that, I said "wwhat!?", what happens with the other eleven hours in the day? It's just not nice to fool with Mother Nature!

    What is 12-1 light? Can someone please explain?

    12 hours of darkness ? And then only one hour of light ?? Or am I too stoned right now??🀣
    Just because people are over 50 doesn’t mean they know everything.

      I read it 3-4 times to be honest. But I think I’m not getting it, because it sounds really weird. That light cycle
      Doesn’t make sense in my head that light cycle.

      Why it's so weird? tell me friend. What's weird is how our governments are playing po..... with us. Now that's weird !! It's up to you to fill the dots from the word po, well the beginning.

    Not a natural light cycle. During outdoor growing season
    sunrise is around 6am and sets around 8-9 pm. Your grow is too valuable to mess with Mother Natures cycle.

      Ain’t it a shame that real research on just about all of cannabis characteristics has been held up until recently?
