If you just had a bunch of seeds in your hand it would be almost impossible to tell what kinda strain you . As they grow they may develop some characteristics of certain strains that may make it easier to tell . If your buying seeds from a retailer it should always be indicated 100% on the packaging what strain you have . It may not tell you the info such as flowering time or the percentages of indica/sativa but it should at the very least tell you who they came from : Dinafem , Canuk Seeds , Barneys farm and so on and it should also be written the strain and if its feminised. With that being said you can determine the dominant of a plant by looking at the leaves if they are thinner and longer leaves they are more sativa also with that being said the plants tend to grow a little taller . If the leaves are bigger but shorter you have yourself an indica plant , there's a third type of plant but you dont often see it as a dominant its always mixed in with strains , it is called ruderallis and its main trait that instead of growing 5 7 9 12 parts to a leaf it will usually on do 3 parts . According to your diary your strain your are growing isnt an auto so i wouldnt recommend leaving the lights on 24 hours . Plants need a rest period (photosynthesis period) which is usually done at night . You can leave the lights on 24 hours a day but your growth won't be as fast as 18 hours or 20 hours . Most pro growers when doing photo period strains will only veg for 20 hours a day max in order to give the plant some rest time . I hope this information is useful to you in understanding abit about the different types of cannabis plant and the importance of giving your plant rest time if its a photo period plant . -Happy Growing!

Agree to Athos, you will only see during your grow in wich direction seh goes, and latest in flower it sagould be clear. I hope we find out earlier, because treatment of an automatic is different to an Photoperiod strain

There's no way to tell which strain it is. By the look of the leaves you can tell if it's more of a sativa (thin leaves) or indica (big fan like leaves), but nothing else. Although you can keep the light on 24/0, there's such things as diminishing returns, meaning that the aditional growth you get over, say 20/4 is not worth the added power used; either use a 18/6 or 20/4 light schedule. Good luck mate.
