    Daylight savings

    Did anyone else's plants get only 11hrs of sleep last night?
    How do y'all work around that?

    Too late, amigo. You've already complied to 'the' government's further control of time. Good luck with that whole, only 11 hours thing. They're going to give you 13 hours later in the year. Make your mind feel a little blown?

      I set a timer, it doesn’t change with the actual time until I change it.. so I generally just change it for the next “day cycle” guess it was really cloudy for that hour

      Gingerbeard lol yeah- I guess I felt the Government bend me over haha. Oregon has an initiative to join Arizona in ignoring daylight savings time. I hope it passes. Daskahn I had a timer set..... Too bad it was a smart digital fancy unit that changed time like a phone.

      In Saskatchewan we always stay the same time. Who has time to change all of their clocks?

      I do not change my timers, I also dont really follow a clock all the time change means to me is whatever TV show I was watching now comes on an hour different. The gov has told all y'all to do this and you do it. Back when I worked many of the jobs I had we changed the working hours to combat this conspiracy. And what is DST really for? Well I'll tell you, it's so you go spend more of your money, yep more time to shop, more time to run the boat, etc..

        Every year I hear about a movement to lobby “POLITICIANS” to change this nonsense and keep it at the same level all year long. Sadly, this has not happened but there appears to be growing expression of voices saying the same thing...I don’t know bout you folk but the loss of the hour in spring screws me up way more than the fall.

          In the scene in EASY RIDER as Wyatt and Billie are sitting on their motorcycles ready to start their trip, Wyatt (Peter Fonda) takes off his watch and tosses it on the ground.... the camera zooms in on the ticking watch as the sound of 2 Harley Davidsons begin to motor down the road....

          One of my favorite movies as a kid. how can I send you this “flying fart”?

        I think we have to go to Tanna and talk with the John Frum society. They consider DLST a kind of time travel. The elders have all the answers.
        The US gubmint has been trying to time travel with the clock changes, as John Frum told the Tannanicans. If we pay attention when we set the clocks back, again, and are awake at 2:00 in the morning, we can choose different paths to travel, having gone back an hour in time. So, make sure you're awake at 1:00. Take notes of the hour until 2:00 and do something else.

          I just realized that same hour we lose and gain is another hour for gubmint to screw things up and an hour to try to fix things.
          This is making more and more sense. One of my better conspiracies. Who's on board?

        My timer just comes on and turns off every 12 hours, it doesn't give a shit about time changes or whether or not it's clock is accurate it just keeps on going off and coming on every 12 hours.

            Fancy this fancy that. I stay as far away from fancy as I can if you have a timer with one plug, plug a 3 way into it
            7 medium plants in flower. 2 sativa strains and 2 indica strains. Bagseed.
            4 aurora indica fem photo started and sprouting in the baby box.
            Philizon lighting 1600-330w, bloom plus(spider farmer) 1500-150watts and 100 watt 6500k tri light. 580 watts plus 250w in the corners(off at the moment). 830watts in the 4*4 tent.
            Proud to be Canadian, sad about the piddly 4 plant limit. Rules are meant to be broken. Trudeau is a fkn goof. Want seeds? Seedsmans the man.
            2 x opulent systems 4x4x80 tents and a 24x40x48 baby box.
            GH full line of nutes+calmag and my molasses sugar brown sugar liquid mix at 30ml per liter.
            Happy growing/consuming 🥴

            I had a talk with my plants about government control of time. Trying to help them understand what's going on. To ease them into it, I made sure the clocks were set after I put them to sleep. I don't grow stupid plants. They could feel the difference. Dabber was going out at the same time. I was making coffee at the same time. No morning duties change, according to the clock. But man, you could just tell they were confused.
            I think they're cool, now. Changing time can be stressful if the plants don't know what's going on. Maybe it would be better either not to have a grow happening during the government's control and change of time, or just have them sprouting or early veg when the light is always on.
            I mentioned sun dial technology, somewhere. MIT, NASA, Skunkworks (shh), DARPA, and my neighbor Robert are working on SDT. The dial plate is a light sensor that is linked to a GPS device. The gnomon's shadow will activate and deactivate cells on the dial plate, keeping exact time with the Sun. Atomic clocks are great but are only accurate for so long. We non-governmental types have used the Sun since the dawn of time to set our clocks by. Never had to make an adjustment for nothing until the government types stepped in and said, "Hey! We're in the atomic age. We should use atoms to tell time. The Sun is so... beginning of time. Atoms are so now!"
            I'd love to get into the 'seriousness' of the whole time thing hazenph . The dog needs a thing. I might, too.

              Forgot to mention something.
              You probably won't find anything about the DST on the 'regular' web, if you know what I mean.
