Photo time

How long do most of you have your lights on? My actinics come on at 9:30 with my MH on at 10:00. At night the MH go off at 9:00 and the actinics at 9:30. Total actinic time 12 hours... MH time 11 hours... is this to long?

My lights are PC based.

The actinics come on around 10AM and click off around 11PM. The daylight bulbs come on around 11AM and off at 10PM.

Those times are approx but the light exposure is about that many hours.

Actinics 12 hrs, MH 9 hrs.

IMO, 11 hours is a little too much for MH, unless the wattage is questionable.
