I made a new beam for my light and when I changed it out I unplugged the lights and timer. The timer's a digital model and plugging it back in didn't put it back to the programmed cycle. I noticed after one day and changed it but in the meantime it screwed up the cycle. The lights ran for 32 hours straight before being put back on their regular 12/12 cycle.

I have two plants near the end of flowering, and three that were in veg until about 3 weeks ago. Any predictions on how badly this screwed the plants up?

And, yeah -- I'm kicking myself in the butt for not checking the timer when I put it back up. It's a dumb ship noob mistake for sure. WR

Yeah, don't sweat it. But don't mess up the light cycles any more either...

Talk about treating them with "kiddie gloves", my power went out the other day and I started the generator when it didnt come back on in 5 mins. It was mid day, I would never have done that for myself. It was on an hour and a half later.

I added a light and not in the right spot and when the timer turned off it didnt and was on all night. I am still in Veg so it probably not an issue at all.

Is it bad to turn off the seedlings (1 week) light for a few hours after about 8 hours of light? Had unexpected visitors

No, and no posts in this thread for the past two years. Just better to start your own thread and ask your question.
