Milky Way Trailers

A friend of mine is of the opinion that Milky Way Trailers grow better given natural light.
A recent Facebook pic shows a huge difference between two plants grown from the same parent stock one of which is under lights and the other using natural light.

Is this a well known occurance?
Because if so I might move a couple of my own plants into daylight.

Andrew -

it is such a good variety - it grows beautifully everywhere. Of course move some to the daylight - and do not forget to turn them so they won't become lopsided sitting on a windowsill.

It was always grown well for me - but I saw that in cooler conditions the leaves and flowers become bigger. And it sometimes sports to a very pale pink at the centers of the blossoms- which is NO-NO.
