I ask about this every 5 years on the net. So now it's
a good idea? For 20 years it's been "uh...".

Ironically I was rewiring my lights this week to only half the
fluorescents (a bank of 8 over 6 20's turned sideways) come
on for 6 hours around "noon".

Is there consensus on photoperiod these days? 12? 16? does
it matter?
