cubensis are phototropic...they technically do not need light to induce pinning...but in my experience, i leave the light on 24/7 when i want things to happen :wink:

No. They need light to pin. Not much light, but nevertheless.

Sorry to disagree, but they really do need light to pin. In its natural setting, light is its way of knowing it has reached the surface and a signal to further pin.

Leaving your light on 24/7 may be a bit much though. Many will have success with as little as 15 daily minutes.

I have my light set to one hour every six hours for a total of four daily hours.
