    I have some 4 week old seedling, started indoors under LED light. They have been on 16 hours of light a day. If I move them outside now at 14 hours a day, will it trigger flowering on these girls? Are there any good ways to do this?

    Thanks to All

    Quite possibly.

    If you can interrupt the dark period with an hour of light, it'll prevent flowering. You'd have to do this until your comfortable with the length of the day.
    It's a PITA, but if you want an early start, it'll be more work. ;)
    You'll be moving lights or plants for a short while. Depends on the plant.

    Toss one out and see what it does, then you'll know.
    It's a lil' soon for most strains I've tried at 42ᵒN. They'd flip.

    Only 4 weeks old? Doubt if it would hurt them at all. You'd want to harden them off it there's a big change in temps but otherwise your plants aren't mature enough at 4 weeks to flower no mater what you do. Get 'em outside! Then in a few months you can return them indoors to flower, if you keep them in pots. I plan to do the same.
