i am still in the first week of flowering. i came home tonight and the bulb burnt out i guess! i got the florescents back up to get the light back on. i got my light from 7pm to 7 am. it was 1030pm when i found them still in the dark! will those extra hours of darkness stress them too much? or the switch from hps to flo? (man they were slammin with that hps too!) i will try to get another bulb/ballast soon. do yall think i stressed them too much?

Damn man what a bummer. This is why you should have two bulbs around just in case. ;) Time will only tell if your ladies have been stressed but i think you should be fine. Good luck. :aok:

I wouldn't anticipate a problem. It's often better to have a lack of light during the light cycle than exposing them to light during the dark cycle.
