Lighting question

Just wondering how long everyone's photo period is for their cp's?
Right now it's ~15/9. That reminds me... I need to switch the timer on the grow rack to 14/10. As much as possible, I try to follow the natural photoperiod.
You should take into account that artificial lighting will not be as strong as natural light, so will need to be on for more hours to compensate. It also depends on the plant. For an equatorial plant then the photo-period would be approximately the same all year round.
About 14 hours year round for my Nepenthes due to how close Nepenthes live to the equator.
