Light Leaks? Slight Mishap

Has anyone had any experience with exposing light to your lovely ladies while they were in darkness? I had a slight mishap last night and im a lil worried. The ole lady was talking with a friend and decided to open my tent to show it off. The lights had been off for 2 hours and she opened the tent for about 30 secs to a minute. Lets just say i was pissed but what can you do about once its been done. Do you guys think that was enough to cause them strees?

She just opened it? I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Unless you have the force of ten suns beaming into it?

Just as a precaution, I would encourage you to encourage her not to show people in general, legal or not. People get weird and can’t help themselves.

Yes she just opened it…smh. A complete no no in my house! Guess she was just in the moment and wasn’t thinking.

I’ve done it before going to put something back in and forgetting what time it was. Everything worked out okay. I’m pulling for you.

What are you growing, I guess I should ask since I know not all plants are the same?

I am not sure if I would worry that much. YaMar has come down from a long line of strains. By now, it should be very stable. Gelato is also a stable strain. I am not sure about GDP.
Worse case scenario - you get nanners or hermie. Just be on the watch for male sacks to make sure you do not seed out your grow. Start looking hard after about 5 days.
Get yourself a green light to allow peeking during dark times. Sometimes light will cause stress, may slow things down a little but as I said, these are pretty stable strains you go going there

You don’t know how many times I have accidentally open my closet when light were off before it dawned on me. It doesn’t do much as long as it’s not for an extended period of time a few seconds or a minute here and there has never affected any of my plants that I am aware of.

I am on my 4th indoor grow and all in all 14 plants probably in only one threw seeds on me and I don’t think it was because of the light and I’ve opened the closet on every 1 of those grows by accident for sure more than once. I tend to get high and forget what time it is when I open the door
