this is not a good way but its what happend to mine. i through mine in the shade under a tree and they started to bud so i moved them but if your able to block the sun so that they only get 12 hours of light then they will start to flower
Plants respond to the length of day, not number of hours of direct sunlight. And 12/12 has no significance whatever outdoors - read my link on flowering.
Just let nature take its course.

lot of outdoor coming in already up here in humboldt, they are using temp green houses and tarping them to get the 12/12 forcing the flower. you should be able to do it on smaller scale.
Seems like a lot of work pulling a tarp over a green house every evening and then pulling it off every morning for weeks. Seems letting mother nature take it's course is easier and more low key.
Not sure about anyone else, but I think my neighbors would get mighty curious if they seen me in my back yard doing all this work with covering/uncovering a green house twice a day for weeks on end..

Thank you all your suggestions. I'm leaving for college too early in the season so thats why I have to do this.
Can anyone tell me how long I'd have to use this method before the plant is ready to harvest?
Depends on the strain... Anywhere from 7 to 12 weeks, even longer for a few pure sativas.

JUst let nature take its course and it should be fine. 7-12 weeks, i always cut around 8-10 TBH. inless it's bovious it's not ripe enough. Get a 10x mag and look at trich color, 70-80% is perfect.

IF you can remember to do it at the right time every single day without fail.
Otherwise just let nature take its course - what´s the rush? Good bud takes time.
Hey Everyone -
I agree with FlyGuy on this topic..... If you are trying to trick your plants into the flower cycle by denying them light - you MUST remember to do it at the right time EVERYDAY for several weeks!! If you are not a person who can keep that type of schedule -- DON'T BOTHER -- you will only make a mess out of your grow!!

Place a bin upside down over it each day, a few hours before dusk, then remove in the morning at Dawn.
I honestly don't know if that'd work, but it seemed like a good idea after that bong:smoke:
This works.I have used black garbage bags. This is an O-L-D trick!
This proves my theory that Stoners throughout history, sepeated by continents, Still have the same awsome Ideas after a bong:D
