Moving a flowering plant outside

Hello all

What would happen if I moved a flowering plant outdoors now ?

Would it continue to flower per chance ?

How's the light hours in your area? If you can make sure it doesn't get more than 12 hours of light you should be in the clear :-gthumb

@TK, a friend recently did it. During the day (6am-6pm) she's outside, then he puts a big black bin over her that has an extraction fan hooked up to it. No light leaks at all, plant seems fine.

@TK IMO the 12/12 rule ONLY applies to indoor growing. What I have found out this year is that if your plants has been vegetating indoors for more than 18 hours and you move them outside even while there is 14 hours of light to only 10 hours of darkness, it will still flower. It usually takes 4 - 6 weeks before the plant will start re-vegetating.

That's why I moved all my indoor plants outdoors under a fully shaded area on 1 December. On 22 December i moved all my plants into partial sunlight. They've been getting some heat stress but I'm sure they will recover.

The most important point is that my plants wont re-vegetate because Summer solstice started on 22 Dec. That means the days will only get shorter until the winter solstice.
