I'm actually really curious about this, but it seems as if, since they grow well in Northern latitudes (such as Norway, Arnhild?) where, in the summer, it hardly gets dark at all, and then they do well again the following spring, that reverting from a light/dark cycle to an all light cycle wouldn't affect them adversely?

(My goodness, but that was a long sentence. Uh...too much caffeine?)

QUESTION: Can seedlings be put *ON & OFF* the (lighting?) growing processes?

EXPLANATION: It is pretty well proven, that newly sprouting seedlings; exposed to continuous lighting, do adapt well to this 24 hours/day photo period; and providing for faster maturing!  However, I was also told by a very informed person: that putting plants into a light & darkness process of growth:-> then, one cannot revert back to the continuous lighting procedure??? <TRUE> OR <FALSE> and related logic <-> ANYONE?
