My 400w galaxy ballast broke sometime during the day this last Saturday (MLK weekend). Since the hydro shop was closed Sunday, i had to leave my ladies in the dark for about 36hours. Im unsure of when the light went out, i have it on during the day and off at night - 6am to 6pm, but i noticed it Sunday morning, so the plants went all day Sunday without light and about 6 hours on Monday. I figured its safe to say they might have got about 36 hours of darkness. Funny thing is though, i think the plants were stressed prior to this happening, so its almost as if it reset them.
They now have a stronger aroma and look healthy. However with a week left of flowering im not sure how this will effect my girl. I had to give it only 6-7 hours of light on monday and about the same on darkness to get it back on my normal schedule of 6am to 6pm.
Im checking it each day hoping for the best, and im just feeding it water now since it was about time to flush anyway. Im in dirt (miracle grow organic) and using a combo of foxfarm products.
How do you think they will respond to this accident?
