So due to my living situation I am only able to have my lights on during the night (from about 9 pm - 9 am). From 9 am to the next pm the neps are out of any direct light and only get very very little diffuse light. They get about 4 hours with absolutely no natural light before I turn the lights back on. Does it seem like this is enough of a dark time for the plants? Or should I try to find some other solution?
From what I understand if they don't get enough of a dark time over a period of time they will eventually wear out. So I'm trying to make sure I have the right balance before those negative effects would set in.
