I've been wanting to post about the 18/6 & 12/12 times. Is there any studies done on other times, or is this just accepted as gospel? I know some do 24hr for veg. But I'd be nice to se a controlled study of veg and bloom lighting times.

I wonder if at some point it will take longer to ripen, and lose some of the savings. Like I said, it'd be interesting to see a controlled study where everything was the same but using differing light times. I would think someone somewhere would have studied it --considering how much money is involved.

Here they are 17 days in to bloom. The Cheesus and Chocolope are slower to start budding and I imagine will be the last to get harvested. Attached File  IMG_0153.jpg   1.2MB   13 downloads Attached File  IMG_0151.jpg   1.18MB   19 downloads Attached File  IMG_0154.jpg   1017.79KB   16 downloads

Week four update. All are looking good to me and it's smelling nice. The Ganesh Spirit has the best looking buds so far, but the Cheesus and the Chocolope may develop nice colas - hopefully. The Chocolope is growing very tall and was relegated to the corner - may need to do some pruning/cropping next go around. I've been battling fungus gnats for weeks - at times severe infestation. I finally got some sand at the nursery and after putting on the top of the soil two day ago I'm seeing major decrease already. Also had some powdery mildew on a couple plants. Made a neem/H2o2 spray and that worked well. I followed up today with a milk spray. The problem was I stopped using the lg oscillating fan (not sure why) and only had a small one going. The pistils didn't really like the neem, but the leaves look great.

I was wondering if they were slowing down, or if it's the watched pot syndrome. Next watering they're going to get some delicious molasses. I've never used it before but it sounds like anywhere from 1 tsp - 3 tbs per gallon of water. I may start with 2 tsp/gal to start - what 'cha think? Along with the Botanicare Bloom i'm using already.
