Probably nothing? Plants don't use nutrients at night. I have measured the level of nitrate at the end of the light cycle and the next morning. Same reading.

I dose before I go to bed when the lights are off. No problem either way.

as long as you are consistent...plants dont care as long as the nutrients are available in the quantities and at the times they need them

I dose when I remember. It's gone from daily to biweekly at most....I'm not very good at keeping up habits. And on top of that dosing happens day or night. No real problems as of yet.
