I guess it depends on the light. HID lights might cause excess wilting. You will probably have some wilting for a few days anyway but I doubt fluorescent lights would make it worse. Al

Direct sun or halide lights should be avoided. If you are using standard shop lights I have never found it to be a problem but a day of no lights isn't going to hurt them either.
