I think its based on your geolocation and times of the year. If i had started my seeds in april they would've been a bust. Starting them in late May to early June has allowed me to expect a harvest date closer to end of september to mid october...

Given my weather patterns, i rely heavily on the farmers almanac.

My seedlings are currently getting around 13-14 hours of light, at least 8-12 of those is direct sunlight when we're sunny. Today for instance, it's cloudy and their sitting on a window sill that gets light all day long.

Usually they're out on the back porch in sunlight all day and they're growing fine.

I’ve read that things like, spectrum, temp, the increase or decrease of hours of sunlight and a couple other things all factor in to it. I’ve had plants started inside that I’ve then put outside that have started flowering, but the same type of plants that I topped hadn’t. So I also thing it has something to do with the photo receptors being primed in a certain way.

More to your point, here we can’t put plants out in April because it’s to cold but even if we did it would probably flower. In Cali they can start outdoor really early(or never stop it) but they do a lot of topping and the heat and spectrum is different so they can get away with it

It works like this bulls bach.... Up here in wet Wales 󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 we sow our runner beans at the end of May!!!! Now if we were down south we would sow them end of April altho they would be on the same day length!!!!! The plants down south would flourish and mine would die . There's so many factors growing outside apart from day length .but a general rule to thumb is the longer the light period the plants veg. .... The shorter days bring on flowers as the plant needs to reproduce

Great Googly Moogly
