    HELP! I accidentally left the light on 24/7 in flower for about a week..

    Hi, so this grow has been absolutely perfect... Until it must've been close to a week ago.

    Plants are 3 weeks into flower tomorrow.. But probably around a week ago the switch on my lights timer got flipped to stay on 24/7 and I just noticed it tonight..

    I'm really concerned they may hermie or revert back to veg or both..

    And could this make them take longer to flower as well?

    Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    Nothing you can do about the past and to worry over spilled milk or cry or something like that does nothing to help.

    Just put them back on the flower schedule as you had it and watch your plants, yes you'll probably need to add some time to the flower period.

    I'll teabag your drumset.

      Don't see any reveg (nice plants by the way) so you may just see a "stall" in progress and if was me I'd prepare to add a couple weeks to your finishing dates.

      Can I ask why you are spraying the plants?

    Okay thank you! What are some signs of revegging I can look for?

    And I use the full fox farm nutrients and one of them is called flowers kiss. A foliar spray used at night.


      Flowers kissed gotcha, just be careful with the watering residue and droplets on the plants at lights on, humidity and moisture will cause mold and rot in flower so be careful and keep in mind if the plants slow you may need to adjust the nutrients schedule appropriately, lots of one week additives on the fox farm dozen.

      Elongated node spacing, single leaf branches, stretching and weird growth slow growth. Kinda cool to watch but not if it is unwanted as in your case.

      Good luck and I'd love to see the finishing plants😉

        Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it! Always learning!

        Do you think there's a chance they'll hermie because of this?

          The times I've seen a plant hermie is always at the end and usually because I went too long or some other extreme stress issue. My last grow popped out a nanner on the top bud but I had already cut the main colas and it was going into the third week past that.

        Sdubus10 Great looking grow, they should be fine. At three weeks in you should read up on Nebulas defoliation tutorials and get your trimmer out. Looks like they need it.

          Yep, that's exactly what I use. Nebulas Manifolding tutorial. Planned in doing the final big trim today @ 3 weeks.

          Around here we have seriously high humility. Spraying flowers with anything will almost guarantee some form of mould/fungus.

          I wouldn't spray flowers unless you are trying to solve another problem such as pests.


            Looks like you're going to be okay and come away with a good story to tell with friends while you're consuming and sharing this harvest with friends! It's always when we're feeling the biggest that nature comes to knock us down a peg.

            Good job not giving up!

              That was beautifully said. Brung a tear to me eye. Please check your complacency at the door.

              This is terribly sad. Brings a tear to my eye.
