Wisdom Wednesday: 12-1 Light Cycle, money saving tip for your garden

What’s good Greenies and welcome to another insightful Wisdom Wednesday from me, ThisBuds4You. This week we’re in the garden talking about how to save money on those power bills because they can be OUTRAGEOUS! And this week we’re looking at a different light cycle called a 12-1 light cycle for vegetative growth. The 12-1 lighting schedule is as follows: 12 hours lights on, 5.5 lights off, 1-hour lights on, 5.5 lights off, and repeat schedule. The 1 hour on in between off period fools the plants that stay in vegetative growth state.  Your immediate savings are 5 hours in energy costs daily, as well as your bulbs and equipment lasting longer. But how do the plants react to this lighting schedule? I’ve heard some growers that love it, and others hate it. Jorge Cervantes says growers that love this light cycle say they get more vegetative foliage and more bud sites. But others tell me that some plants, especially Kush plants, will preflower too much in the vegetative stage and cause problems when flowering. What has been your experience using the 12-1 light cycle? Leave a comment below and let us know. To read more about the 12-1 light cycle check out this link here.
