As I sit in my room in the dark with my tent lights on I see pin holes of light though the zipper part...will this have a serious affect when flowering? Should I get duct tape happy?

You could use a tarp or something to cover the area better..b a pita to take the tape off all the time..

No. Don’t worry about it unless it’s in a bright showroom.

Shouldn't be an issue. I can see a few pinholes in my tent zipper as well. I had my wife zip me up in mine one time with all the lights on outside and sun coming through the window and it was so black I couldn't see my hand in front of my face in there. Couldn't see any pins of light. That's the best way to check for leaks.

I use aluminum tape on the inside of my tent but sometimes they only stick for a few weeks. I actually have 1 pin hole on the door flap that I leave that's visible from the doorway of the room so I know if the lights are on or off with a glance. Always worried about the timer messing up lol

Here's the problem I see: Too much floor space is visible! Stuff that tent with about two more plants of similar size.

Nope! I have gone from crazy pitch black to eh it’s less than a full moon and no issues. I have a some light that sort of makes it way but still dark.
I’d be far more worried about digital timers. I’ll never use them. Seen people fuck up and basically ruin the crop.

I have had light leaks with no issues and a pinhole that reversed a plant in its path. So it is plant dependent. No way to know. And the moon is a reflective light source. It measures only 1 candlepower at most. 1 lumen. Humans see very well. Plants likely can’t see (feel) the moon

Well thanks everyone for your response...I feel a lil better about turning my lamp on when it's dark time in the tent 😎

It’s definitely strain dependent imo. I’d still get a green light if I was poking around in the dark. Just to be on the safe side.
