I use 18/6 but during the winter months I'll go 20/4 because I need the heat from the lights. If it gets really cold I'll run them 24/7 if I have to just for their heat.

This is the light guys
I looked couldn’t find exact specs - but typically that light would 100 or 150 true watts - to grow cannabis effectively you need imo about 30 watts a square ft. Your space is 9/10 square feet so need at least 270 true watts , I think you will need more light
