    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.

    by stretch do u mean like the first set of leaves are realy big and wide? bc thats what they did, is this a really bad thing or can it be lived with?

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

    When I grew, I know my plants preferred 18/6 veg then 13/11 flower.

    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.
