Hey guys, my hps shorted or something and my light was off most of the day, however I had a few cfls in the closet on, but they weren't over the plants. Basically there was very little light on em, but still some, will my plants be affected harshly by this?

i appreciate the help guys, in my mind i chalk it up to a dark mean storm rolled in lol. the reason it went out is because the outlet timer would reset if the got "jiggled" like if someone stepped on the cord it might shut off, but since the lights are on 24/7 at this point i just plugged the hps into the wall directly to ammend the situation.

I would strongly recommend dumping that timer and getting another. This may be a sign of "short" developing. I've seen a few melted timers and it's not a pretty sight...especially if it's not discovered before what comes after the melting. Haven't seen a timer start a fire first hand but the potential is definately there.
