Alright guys and gals and experts all I need you help with a question. Taking 12-12 to 11-13, 10-14 to promote faster bud growth? So I was at an old buddy of mines house yesterday and he was telling me that I am screwing up and messing with my yields by not continually cutting my light cycle on down after the flip. He said at 3-4 weeks I should have changed it to 11 hour days and 13 hours night then a month later to 10 hour days and 14 hour nights. He said the buds do all their growing at night so this helps. I assume this is what you all are using the far red initiators to achieve. If so I need to look into those. But this time around I am 4 weeks to it is time to cut it if I am going to. I have always kept it on 12-12 till harvest but he told me that is why It takes so long to finish as well. To this I replied I am growing for quality above all else time is a non issue no rush. He said it would help that too.
Has anyone else ever heard of this? Does it help yield and bud growth/structure? If this is worth doing please let me know. It does make sense as the seasons and day lengths change. I have gotten bad advice before too so I wanted to get the science on this before trying.
Peace, Love, Dank Nugs DGC
