scheduled double days. more growth? or too much stress?
Two times, by accident I've left the plant light on all night long and carried on the cycle through to the night. Both times it's looked like the plants grew quite as bit in those extra 8 hours and showed no signs of lag over the next few days. Also, they are in veg. Both incidences happened weeks apart. If I do this once every few weeks, will this stress the plant too much? or will it give it a slight advantage.
I compare this idea to a typical american teenagers week. work 5 days with a normal school/sleep schedule, but pull an all nigher from Saturday to Sunday evening, wake up normal time for school on monday, and do it all over again next week!
I know that overtime it would take its toll on the teenager, so maybe I shouldn't do it every week, but once every second or 3rd week.
Like I say, when it happens by accident, the results always SEEM good. Any thoughts or experiences?
