read this one second so i will say sorry but i don't really think it matters if i ask twice and i guess you mean a timer with a battery back-up i have been growing 10 years never faced this before. I live in the middle of nowhere and have had power failures for a short time but never like this and didn't realize I had a problem as the power went out durring the dark cycle so I thought it would be okay till i saw new growth

4 U is really nice and he was just pointing out something to you. Jeez.

Ok, So to your question, it may take a couple of weeks for your plants to revert back. They may grow in circles, but they will come out of it. That is too bad, that is everyones fear around here, a power outage during flowering.
Good luck. Let us know how it turns out for you.

Merlin, I don't understand how your plants reverted to vegging.

Vegging won't happen unless you go beyond the 12/12 or even 14/10 with some strains.

If the power is off, you have darkness. No problem.

Are you saying you didn't notice your lights on after the power resumed and the lights went past the 12 hour on cycle?

What type of timers were you using to have them become corrupt as a result of nothing more than a power outage?

You may want to start doing what I do; I check my lights at each end of every 12 hour on/off cycle to make sure they're working. I just plan my day so I can be home at those times.

In all my years of growing, I've never had a timer go bad on me. I use the cheapos that cost about $10.

Thanks for the sorry, we could forget it now and hopefully you will get some help with your grow.

me too 10 years never had a problem and when the power went out i did not expect a problem so i did not check my on off times i will now infact i did not know anything was wrong till I noticed fresh growth and I'm still not sure what went wrong my lights were set to go at 7pm off 7am on then 2 power failures of about 4 to 6 hours each i figure that the timer would change to say 11 and 11 or somthing like that still don't know what went wrong for sure but my lights are now back to 8 and 8 and have stopped vegging at least some i use the sea of green method so i have 6 new plants each week so my plants are in continuous different stages i just want to know if they will go back to normal budding if there are no hermies I have cut down plants and restarted them before and grown all new buds but it does not always work so I was looking for imput i expect all will be ok in time what do you think

it does matter if you ask the same question twice and start 2 different threads. It fills the forum with duplicate posts that are not needed.

The reality of it is you "should" post once and be patient and wait for a response. Not start another thread. Not telling you what to do, just a kind suggestion.:)
