Interrupted artificial light?
My question concerns growing under artificial lights (florescent.) I work full time and so of course I like to enjoy viewing my violets when I am at home, which is early morning and evening. Since they look their best when the lights are on, would it harm them if I set the timer for a split schedule: On for about 2 hours in the early morning when I'm up and going about my morning chores, then off when I leave for work and on again in the afternoon to remain on until I go to bed? The total time on would be 11 hours, which is what they are used to now. Would that break in the lighting (there would be some natural light from the window across the room so they would not be in total darkness) confuse them and harm their development in any way? Has anyone else done this?
