I am sure I will get multiple opinions on this but curious about how long I should have my fans running. 4x4 grow tent plants are about 2 months into veg. Their in organic living soil. I currently have them blowing at a medium setting 24/7. I also have AC cloudline t6 fan that is set to turn on if humidity rises above 55% and heat above 78 degrees F. After some thought I am thinking maybe I should just turn them off during the night cycle which is only 4 hours for me. Other wise they may burn out pretty quickly running 24/7. Thoughts? Also flower time is coming soon for me I read to leave them running for an hour after dark and then shut off during flower. Any advice on this would be nice too! Thanks in advance for any replies.

I've had a 6 inch cloudline running for years now. If you're worried it will burn out, get a backup and quit worrying.

Starting and stopping is harder on most electrical equipment than running full time. I have 7 fans running 24/7 + 2 intake and 2 exhaust year round. I have one bathroom fan I use as exhaust out of my veg room that's been running non stop ( except power failures) 5 years & its still running smooth.
