To Continue or Start Over

Post  tumtumsback on 2/7/2014, 11:37 pm

Terrible ice storms up here in Maryland; my power has just been restored after 3 days of dark.

Here is what my seedlings look like after 3 straight days of no light:







I started the Romanesco on 1/27 .. I started the Calabrese on 1/29 .. All day on 2/5, 2/6, and 2/7, no light! (72 hours total time no light, while they were 8 and 6 days old.

Do I start over, or keep them going?!

They look just fine to me.  Get some lights on them and they will be good.  JMO

If I am going to get lights back on them, I am going to wait until 6:30AM tomorrow morning so I can go back to my 6:30AM / 12:30AM cycle... Any other opinions?

+1 get some lights to within a few inches of the seedlings and they will be fine!

They should be fine, and you really can't get too close to most florescent bulbs.

This is an old 40w bulb.  Lettuce in front; spinach in rear.
