    i have some seedlings going, but i cant put them outside fulltime yet because i dont want them to flower too early. what is the absolute minimum amount of light plants can receive and not flower? i know they usually flower with a photoperiod of 12/12, so will a photo period of 12.5/11.5 or 13/11 be sufficient to keep the vegging? this is my first grow, so any and all advice would be appreciated :)

    no i wouldnt have less than 16 hours but i think outside grows go by season... i think that would make it flower tho...

    depends on where you live really... but you could always bring them in at night and put em under lights for a few hours.... doesnt need to be anything big, just lights.

    thats what im doing right now. i just have them under 2 cfl's. but im doing a guerrilla grow, so thats not really an option. i cant have them at my house once they start to get bigger.

    well still depends on where you are at... put your plants in the ground or outside in pots full time, when the danger of frost is past.... it will vary depending on where you live.... my plants will be outside around the first week of april....
