timer: why does it turn off after 12h and can it be set differently (i.e. shorter period)?

the timer and light are set to 12h on and 12h off to mimic the sun's natural day and night cycle. this facilitates the optimal balance between photosynthesis and rest so that important biochemical processes within your microgreens work most efficiently. optimal growth cannot be guaranteed if you shorten the time or disrupt this cycle.
