If there are light leaks into your grow room, during the 12 hour dark period, your plants will become stressed and may hermadphorodite.  To check for light leaks, stand in your room with the lights off; letting your eyes adjust for a few minutes.  Visually inspect the room by looking around, once your eyes have become accustomed to the door.  And, then with lights off still, fix all the light leaks with tape.  You may need a flashlight for this portion to guide yourself around the room. Ensure that your walls are reflective.  To do so, walls can be painted bright white. 


If you have other light proofing techniques for a grow room, please share them.
