Hey all,

I was wondering if anybody knew what happens if you use a non-24 hour light cycle for flowering. By that, I mean using say a 16 or 20 hour light vs 12 hour dark. Does the plant mature the flowers based on calendar time, hours with a certain DLI, night cycles, or does it just freak out and die? I just finished harvesting some thrip molested autos (apparently don’t buy herbs from a greenhouse to grow beside your cannabis) and was planning the first photo grow after the bugs are all very very dead. I was thinking that if I just used a smart plug instead of a timer, I could set the schedule to whatever I wanted, not being limited to whatever the timer manufacturer built. Just wondering if this would be a good idea or bad or just inconvenient with rotating lights on times. Thanks and keep up the good work.
