Default Low Light Planted Tank lighting

Hello People.

So I am well on my way to starting my new planted tank. I am going with a low light system with eco-complete substrate and the plant growth tablets to assist in the plant growth.

I am still waiting for for my ordered t5 light and then I will strt the process of collecting live plants.

What I need some help with is understanding exactly how much time the plants need to have the light on per day? Given the location of this tank, its not going to get any direct sunlight, so the tank light will need to be the source of growth. Can someone recommend a lighting schenme? Should i purchase a timer to ensure the tank gets the appropriate amount of daily lighting?

Any comments welcome.
