I was on a forum and reading an article that was stating that changing the light cycle you can cut back flowering time and increase Yields..
If this is true it would be fantastic. I've read up on the Alternating Light Pattern Theory. Which people are claiming to also receive better results then all light's on.
The article discussed a growers experiments with 18 hour light cycles, based on the theory that plants were most efficient at gathering light during only a portion of the 'day' cycle. I want to say that during veg, he used 14 on 6 off, and during flower he used 6 on 12 off.
The grower claimed a 3 week shorter harvest cycle, with a 30-40% increase in yield.
Something about this rang true to me, and I want to reread the article, anyone know what I'm talking about or where to find more info? I've tried google, and of course the respective search functions on each site I frequent, with no luck.
Has anyone else Heard of this article?
