Giving a photoperiod 24 hrs light.

Posted (edited)

Is it OK to give a photoperiod seedling 24 hrs light, for a short time?

I need to run some tests before my next full grow. CalMag amounts for the seedling stage, under 24hr lighting conditions, if ur interested...

I dont have any spare auto seeds, but have freebee photo's.

I only need them to live for 10 days, 2 weeks at most, then they'll be tossed.

Will they sprout machine guns and go all Keser Soze on me, killing themselves and everyone on the estate in the process, or am I safe to experiment without any undue effects? (P.S. I was exaggerating just now - im asking if the tests will be void due to some crazy effect of having photoperiod seedlings under 24 hrs light?)

As above. Always start mine with 24hrs light. Also helps to keep things consistent in the first week or so

24hrs here too, I reckon I get a bit of residual heat from my veg tent in the flower tent during lights off so there's that

Mate I've got some plants that are two years old and have never seen darkness.

Photoperiods?

 

I bit the bullet last night and donated 3 of my auto's to a glass of water. The 3 that I wanted to grow the least. I'll be so happy if I find the solution that Im looking for. 

It will be worth it.

Thanks also to @McHazy & @Greenfingerd, not quoted above.

I go 20/4 as soon as they leave my vegging tent and into my flower room. All my seedlings, clones, and mothers stay under 24hrs light
