Yes, I actually asked this question before I started growing. Ozzy gave me a good answer and I wouldn't tell anyone to go 18/6. Short answer, MJ doesn't need a dark period until flower, so why short them 6 hours a day of developement? Thats 42 hours a week.


Whoop Whoop! MCL!!

I also believe that 24/7 the plant matures sooner. Before I Ran 18/6...Sex would show around week 7.....lights on 24/7...Im seeing Male/female around 4-5 weeks...Just my thaughts




Light travels faster then sound....... This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak

Myself I've always grown 18/6, I feel the plants are happier with a little rest each day, they don't seem to stress as easily, especially growing from seed, less stress, less males,less hermiies etc. Good Mojo your way, thanks for replying.
