for fruiting, general advice is to give them 12 on/12 off.

after pinning has stopped, i cut it back to 6/18, it seems to make them grow a bit fatter. hope this helped and good luck!

And you'll hear everything from 1 second of light per day to light on all the time. Truth is, everyone has formed their own opinion based on teks, conversation, and personal experience.

I would recommend exactly what ZeroArmy and the Scatman just said.

Actually 1/2 milisecond to 24hrs.on :wink: :tongue: Light stimulation is most important during the pinning phase with proper intensity (not too strong) and duration pins will proliferate beyond your wildest dreams!!! (All other factors (parameters) taken into consideration). GL and enjoy your stay! :cool:

A 12-18in. would be plenty but a 24in. will work fine also. :laugh:
