What to do when the power goes out?

I didn’t know there was a scheduled outage. Lights have been on 6 hrs after 6 off. Power is out for a few hours. In seedling/early veg stage. Should I be thinking of some form of light source or will it be ok?

If you’ve got any type of light, (battery/candle/solar) throw it in the tent.

I’d be careful with candle, but it’ll suffice if you’re supervising.

It won’t take much to keep them on track. They’ll just think it’s a cloudy day.

I’ll leave it open and put the candle in the room in front and keep it fire hazard free. Thanks for the help

It might take more than one candle.
If you’ve got a flashlight throw it in the tent.
There needs to be a “decent” amount of light so they think it’s daytime. Think enough for a younger person to read by, (I say that as an old fart that wears reading glasses).

You’ll be fine with seedlings and in early veg. Plants won’t flower until they’re 4-5 weeks old, regardless of light schedule.

The thought of all those candles, I’m picturing Carrie’s house, but with pot. “They’re all gonna get high and laugh at you!” :laughing:

Have a Stanley spotlight I got as a gift but of course it wasn’t charged. That thing is powerful and would have done the trick

I bought an inexpensive inverter that I can pull off of a car battery and run lights if needed. Works well.
