Light on my casing 24 hours a day?
    #624248 - 05/01/02 07:45 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I understand you're supposed to have a 12hr on, 12hr off, cycle of light to initiate pinning.

My casing has already started pinning, and fruits are starting to grow. Is it okay to keep the light on 24hrs a day? I use my lightsource as a heating element as well. With it on the terrarium is 76-78, with it off the temp goes down to 68 or so.

My preference is to turn them off when I go to bed. This simulates their natural growing conditions more closely. Does it really make a difference? I doubt it, but it makes me feel better.

Well,

If you are using the lights as a heat source you probably should leave them on.

I only keep mine on 12 hours a day....but have heard of people leaving them on 24/7 and they had good results.

I'd like to see that, it would be interesting and good news if true. Sources please.
