Seedlings home alone

I've got to be out of town for three days and I'm wondering about my 2 week old tomato seedlings I've just transplanted. While I'm gone, should I leave the grow lights on or turn them off? I know a timer would solve the problem but I don't have time to get one and set it up.

Make sure they're well watered and leave the lights on. LIghts on for 24 hrs/day, for a few days, won't hurt anything.

If you're only going to gone 2-3 days, you can do either. Any longer than that, get that timer. Well watered in either case, more so the longer the lights are on.
