Lighting seems to be one of those things that 'just depends'. Light intensity, fertilization, Natural methods vs. high-tech, etc...

I read about dwalstad's split photoperiod once and tried it (14 hrs with a 4 hr rest) . I have to say I am very pleased with the results and I wouldn't change it. But I also know those who light for 7 hours, or 8, or 9, or 10...and everyone of them has great growth and healthy plants.

Very interesting info about continuous light and hygro and the alga. I have a 1 gallon "experiment station" at work on my desk. I think I'll try that with some mosses and plants and see what I end up with. I'll update if anything cool happens. :D
