Light wasn’t on?

Hello growers! I had a question on my flowering tent which is 12/12. My lights come on at 715pm to 715 am. I woke up this morning to find my tent in the dark. Rushing to find out what’s up! I changed my bulb in my cmh fixture but I don’t know when it went off so no idea how much light my plants got last night. I’m in the 6th week off flower. Thinking I should just leave lights off till next light up. Will I run into any problems with this happening? Better to keep lights off till next time the lights fire up?

Similar instance here with switching over to digital timers from mechanical timers. The lights-on time was a bit messed up for a day but got it back to the normal 12/12. No problem. You are OK to leave the lights off and let them come on at their normal time tonight.

Thanks guys! I thought I would be alright. Let’s just hope it was only the bulb, I’ve only ran 2 runs off of it does that sound right? I guess all depends. I’m kinda in a pickle because I have been wanting to purchase some led’s and with this light going out dropping a hundred dollars for a bulb where I can buy some leds for another 300$ or so. Can’t remember the brand my local grow shop has but the price was 750$. I know if walked in with 7 they would take it. I’ve ran 2 315 cmh in my 4x4 but I have 2 fixtures not a double so it kinda sucks. And one cmh isn’t enough.

The led’s at the grow store was 720 w I believe 6 or 7 bar foldable. My dad has the GC ROI720e’s I believe and they rock! This light was very comparable.

So - you are planning to purchase the Growers Choice E720? Or do you have your eyes on another model?

Big physical unit - 47" x 43". The thing is just gonna squeeze into your 4 x 4 when opened up.

Good flower spectrum and PPFD numbers though. Looks like a good flower light. You are gonna find out soon enough.

If it fits. Many "4x4" tents are less than 48-inches in reality.

I had a mechanical timer that would come on and off at all different times when I had it set for 12/12. Ruined my grow and was days away from catching fire. Was a cheap timer that came with a tent kit. Spend money on timers, powerboards etc. If you're growing illegally a fire inside your house is gonna be hard to explain.
