Accidentally left light on for over 24 hours.

When I rescaped my tank yesterday, I forgot that I had switched from timer mode to "on" mode. I left my apartment to go back to Long Island for work and didn't get back until tonight. I was upset to find my light on. How will this effect my plants?

Ive done this quite a few times with some of my planted tanks and it didnt really effect it, no algae, nothing.

Im sure someone else something about this though.....

Since it was just one day everything will be fine worst case scenario maybe a lil algae but I kinda doubt it
