So I would not call myself a beginner but this seems to be the right place to pose a question like this.
Currently I run my veg room @ 18/6 then just place them into the flower box @12/12 in about a week they just take off. I was reading around the internet just to see if there is anything that I could do to improve my process and came across a lighting schedule that looked something like this.
week 1 – 18/6 (veg)
week 2 – 18/6 (veg)
week 3 – 18/6 (veg)
week 4 – 18/6 (veg)
week 5 – 16/8
week 6 – 14/8
this went on until the 12/12 mark, and it was way more detailed than what I exactly typed cutting time off every day to achieve the weekly number.
So finally here is the question, will a smooth transition like this have a significant impact on my plants? I know my current method works without any ill effects. Would recreating the lighting times to match the suns natural daylight hours be of any help? Via (only registered users can se the link, login or register)
