    I'd have to say....... um, 18/6 veg. 12/12 flower.It won't hurt the seedling to have 24 hours.You need to keep the light as close as you can so they won't stretch.

    They are prolly dead fried by now so no need to answer this one, eh?

    When I grew, I know my plants preferred 18/6 veg then 13/11 flower.
    Any posts made by me are purely fictional in nature and by no means is anything I say to be taken seriously. I do not grow or condone the growing of anything not legal. Any and all pictures I post are pictures widley available on the internet and any discussions I am involved in are purely hypothetical or are commentary in nature and should not constitute advice or be considered advice to assist in activities that are deemed illegal.

    cookie, if you are going to copy paste your question into multiple threads unrelated to your query, at least make it make sense..

    I have read on this very board that some have had success with 13/11 as opposed to 12/12 for flower.
    I do not condone the illegal use of any substance. I do not grow marijuana however the posts I place here are for informational purposes only nothing more nothing less.
