    My next door neighbor is a church that keeps the parking lot lit at night. Hasn't caused any issues.

    I have a neighbor with a dusk til dawn light with some giant inefficient bulb, its a MH or HPS i dunno, one of those bulbs that takes a minute to be 100% on, looks like a big box on his wall......ive actually considered asking him if he would like a nice LED motion light and i will install it and pay for it.

    This is such a good question, you would think that the length of time an outdoor grow goes for would minimize the effects...but as other have pointed out it seems to hinder complete maturity of the bud

    think some of it is strain related, some are more forgiving than others.

    I would be pissed to have that shot growing all year only to have it screwed over by a neighbors porch light!

    My neighbors to the south have security lighting that shines right into my yard all night long, and on the west side about 35ft from my grow area is a street light -- and the city switched to cool/blue COB LEDs -- and I've had no hermies. I've had seeds hermie indoors, and the same strains growing outdoors (under the conditions described above) did not hermie. I've never had a hermie in an outdoor grow.

    It's just a theory, but I think that its the consistency of lighting that impacts the most. If your neighbor had a motion sensor light that stayed on for 30 minutes every time it was triggered, and raccoons and cats set it off randomly several times a night, I think that would have more impact than it being on 24/7 where the plants seem to adapt to it as part of their environment.

    Hmm cool. Glad to hear this. I've had some plants hermie indoors and haven't grown them anymore. I should grow them outdoors this year and see what happens

    Ive kinda felt the same w outdoor grows, i also think once a plant is used to the sun its harder to fool.

    If that were the case, i should have hermies from some of the intense lighting shows we get around here. Its not uncommon for a big spring rumbler to come through and have lightning strobe the yard like daylight for 20-30 seconds here and there.

    That's just been my experience, which is limited to four seasons of growing indoor and out... enough time to gather some information, but still little enough experience that randomness and anomalies can play a significant role. Take it for what it is.
