Continuous light, is it ok?

Note however that many plants depend on photoperiodic signals to induce
flowering.  The two well known classes are short day plants (require
peroids of darkness longer than a certain {species or cultivar?
specific} time and long day plants which require peroids of darkness to
be shorter than a certain time to flower.  There are _many_ other
permutations but the short story is that some plants (eg. many short
day plants) will not flower or will substantially delay flowering
without these signals.
