I bought my Apollo Horticulture digital ballast in October and started my grow in November. Well today the ballast came on, running as usual - but the bulb refused to heat up past a faint glowing filament, occasionally flickering for a second then turning off. It does this every few minutes so I'm assuming the light is trying to turn on. I hope the good people at Apollo honor the 3 year warranty card I received with my order. I will update you all as to how they handle the return. My question is this: I have some CFL's and a CFL base plate. I just need to know what wiring I need to actually make this work. Also, I'm 4 weeks into flowering and my babies are looking good. If I theoretically get this up and running today (saturday) but they go without light for 12 hours, what will happen? Is my grow officially worthless? Please help.
