no power

  1. We had a bad storm last night in my area and knocked out my power. I was wandering how long my kids can go without any light. Or water for that mater. Thanks.

  2. if your photoperiod gets interrupted, use alternate lighting. flashlights candles etc. bring them out of the room to a lighted area. outside, maybe not. you could get some unwanted buggaboos. next to a window is good. you could even use regular home lighting hooked up to an APC battery backup type unit. every once in a while, short lighting loss isn't too bad. it depends on the strains stability as to wether or not it hermies. just try and keep the light/dark cycles going as regular as you can. sometimes there's nothing you can do.
  3. ok thanks for the reply growbot. I heard from my partner who i had checking on things. actual light period lose was only between 3-4 hours. I think i might invest in a back-up generator. Anyone have any advice on size req. and whats rewuird to hook on up? thanks again GC community.
