    Aw, f***....

    Half my light panel is dead, just noticed it today. I ordered a new one before realizing that the seller of my first light offers a 2-year warranty rather than the 1-year I first thought (which would have put it out of warranty). I just contacted the seller to see if they can do anything to help, if I wind up with a second replacement I'll just give it to a neighbor who also grows.

    I think the lights died around 9 this morning; my girls are in flower now and I'm wondering if the reduced light intensity for ~24 hours will affect them that much. We have to move by the end of February, so I'm seriously hoping to harvest by then so all I have to transporrt are full drying racks. Flowering was started mid-October and apart from one plant with an existing problem--which I'm just trying to limp to harvest at this point--things are going well. Was hoping to flower longer than 13 weeks to try for seeds but oh well.

    I figured things were going too smoothly...

    Hi man so sorry but I sure know your pain. Dealt with that last winter snow megeddon took out one of my lights and a lot more. I have 1/2 light panel i'm using just veg now all blue and white LOL currently just for clones/seedlings. Just 24hrs? Are they in darkness in the tent. Wouldn't think that would be too long I had to juggle mine indoors with reg. lamp lights with generators. Yours are close to 5wks now in flower? hmmm I sure hope you get your light quickly I've not dealt with no light at all.
    I can't think of anyway to solve this, so sorry damn winter tough when this happens can't put them out for sunshine. Good luck hope that light arrive ASAP

      My new light should be here by tomorrow, that is if the porch pirates aren't out and about. Hopefully I'll be able to stop at home between my 2 jobs to check.

      The wonder twins (yes I have 2 plants in a tent meant for 1, somehow it's working) in their dark period now, most of today and tomorrow they'll be in reduced 'daylight' but it'll be enough to keep them awake if the rest of the panel doesn't fail; I can have the tent wide open during the day so they will get some light. Trying to figure out a time when I can swap the lights out without causing too much chaos (they're well twined into a scrog net and tied to stuff, so I need to be very careful messing with anything above).
