When one is in 12/12 flowering timing and the lights are left on longer than usual, if you put back the 'night' period to keep the 12 hr dark period going the plants should be fine....then one can extend the next 'night' period or shorten the following 'day' period to set things right. IE: Normal timing being , say, 6pm to 6am 'night:lights-out' and 6am to 6pm 'day:lights-on' Now...IF the day period was extended , say...2 hrs, from 6am to 8pm....then change the 'night:lights-out' from 8pm to 8am [keeping the 12 hr dark rule]...the next 'day:lights-on' period could be shortened by 2hrs from 8am to 6pm... and you are back to where you started from :D hehehe RULE OF THUMB: the 12 hr DARK/NIGHT period is sacrosanct ....do NOT go less than 12 hrs dark, but you CAN extend the dark period. The lights/day period can be played with however. muA

So my set up is 6am on,6pm off... How would I fix the 20-25 mins of day light through my windows
That got in with the armoire door open a lil, or should I just leave timer alone?
My grow lights went off just light from windows...

Thanks Medi. Definitely need to think about this second time around...lol. Maybe SOG...

Edit
I also just took a lil look around her, and a few of the fan leave stems have some purple
showing in the stem. Is this something to watch or just norm?

Hello all :) got some new pics to post later. Lady is lookn great, but one quick question... Around the bud sites the lil leafs in the cluster of baby buds are starting to wilt a lil bit?? Is this normal as bud production occurs or is she lacking something?? Nutes are only Sweet, and Maxi Bloom using a lil less then called for. Sweet= 15 ml per gallon Maxi bloom= 1 tsp gallon My res is two and a half gallons Thanks all:)
