    You definitely still need to be sure that you're night cycle isn't being disrupted during flowering. The plants have a biological mechanism that kicks in when the nights are at least however long depending on the strain.

    In darkness a growth hormone builds up until the sun comes out and destroys it. Once the nights are long enough for the hormone to reach the level for your particular strain for a few consecutive nights they'll start flowering. Even if the street light is on a timer the plant won't be able to adapt to it. Your plant is obviously already flowering but the light can also make them take longer to finish and keep them from ever putting all of their energy into it affecting yield and quality.

    That sounds like it should be fine.

    Maybe a little bit but I don't think there's anything to worry about there.

    Those are looking great. I'd definitely stay on top of blocking that street light.

    My neighbors had the same problem. They put up two poles to string a cable between to hang a dark tarp from so they could pull it back during the day. It was about as jugaad as it gets. I'm not sure if I'm using the term exactly right but I did just look up the meaning.

    plants do adapt to their environment as much as they can, but it wouldn't hurt to block as much of that as you could.

    The only way for the plant to adapt this kind of biological response is evolutionary adaptation. One plant in one life isn't going to adapt to this.

    if you are very consistent with zipping your tent up at lights out, and do it all the time, then one day forget to do it, the light pollution will have a much bigger detrimental effect, than if you're lax about it and it happens on a semi regular basis.
    likewise, if you have a perfectly lightproof tent, the plants in it will be very susceptible to light pollution, but if your tent has a lot of little pinholes, and you leave the bottom vent open all the time, a little light pollution will be meaningless.
    i'm not recommending sloppy practices, but these are illustration to make a point. plants can and do respond to their environment. in one lifetime. i haven't had a hermie in over a year, and the inside of my flower tent is NOT perfectly dark.....they can get used to and adapt to small amounts of light.

    That's not an adaptation. Plants outside never see complete darkness. Even the one time exposure of an indoor plant that has had complete dark is on a perfect schedule won't display any ill affects, let alone detrimental ones.

    The biggest problem is when their schedule is inconsistent. A street light will be consistent and so as long as it's not too bright it shouldn't be a huge issue but even then it can still delay the initiation of flowering and make them take longer or even not ever finish fully.

    point ceded as far as the street lights.
    i have had the personal experience of a plant with a single exposure to light in the middle of its night period seeding itself. it otherwise had very dark nights, with no light leaks. i screwed the timer up and didn't realize it till i woke up in the middle of the night and saw the cfl over my seedling tray that was on the same timer was on. i fixed the timer and it worked perfectly after that, so that one instance was enough to make an otherwise healthy clone that had no family history of hermaphroditic behaviour, grow enough bananas to seed the lower half of the plant. it was the only plant i had in flower at the time, so it was the only possible candidate

    That's crazy. I've had my share of accidental disruptions to the night cycle without ever having it be a clear cause of a hermaphrodite. You may have had a very sensitive plant. It sounds like the one incident had to be the cause from the info you shared.

    i tend to think its because i had that plant in a smaller tent that was newer and much more light tight, and i had a smaller light in it so i could leave it zipped up almost all the time. the bigger tent i leave vents open in the bottom, and sometimes i nod off and leave it open for an extra hour or two, and those plants have no problem with occasional light exposure, its the pampered spoiled ones that get pissy....kind of like people
