    12-16 hours. I keep them at 16 hrs/day 365. They grow better that way I think.

    no they were not growing on my window last winter, they are now though, I mean next winter.
    and sun is stronger than fluorescents so I can't see why 20 hours of fluorescents would hurt them when the sunlight is less concentrated during winter and the days get shorter.

    Becuase it takes energy for the plants to use the light and they need some time to rest

    Are you seriously trying to tell me you have 20 hours of sun in the winter?
    Plants need at least 8 hours of "sleep".

    No I'm saying that we have little to no sun during winter and the skies are overcast so I was going to leave fluorescents on for 20 hours so the plants still get lots of light since I grow them in full sun during summer and spring. How about leaving the lights on 17 hours? I would start out with like 8 and then 10 and then 12 and then like 16-17 maybe 18 but I guess 20 is not popular.
