how many hours do you run your lights?

16 years ago

just curious what your light routine is for those of you who grow under lights. I have been doing what Ortho's all about orchids says to do:

Nov-Jan: 16hrs/day

Feb-June: 18hrs/day

July-aug: 16

Sept-Oct: 12.

however, I don't really like running them 18 hours per day, wondering what other people do.

I have an indoor light garden setup: top shelf 4/40watt florescent bulbs and bottom shelf has 2. the phals on the bottom bloom like crazy, and the only thing i seem to still have trouble with is catts (on top). i can bloom den nobile, onc sharry baby and some other intergenerics..

thanks :)
