    I got a late start this year and it's my first outdoor grow. I started in June with some clones that began flowering about a month ago, so started a few plants with seed, which are doing well.

    I had read in the Rosenthal grow book that you could delay flowering in an outdoor grow by exposing the plants to a few seconds of bright light every evening between 9pm-3am.

    Has anyone tried this? if I can delay flowering till late October, I should have a pretty decent crop. FYI, I'm a noob from SoCal.

    hum that sounds like to much work plus who wants to camp out evey night and babysit a plant like that. Just bring um inside.

    My plants are in the ground and I don't have an indoor grow setup, that's why.

    All I gotta say to you is good luck
    Hopefully your buds stay healthy as fuck
    Ya might as well go for the gold
    Maybe those flowers can be picked before too cold
    Otherwise you know, you gave it a chance
    Twist up a joint and do the "warm weather dance"
