Day light is going downwards in august already in my area and august 15th marks the less than 12 Hours day light on calendar. So forcing flower on august 14th for 2 days, once august 16th day light Will be less than 12 hours, like indoor once flowering mode is on.

I don't see how I would miss the stretch as it lasts for weeks and should happen regardless of any force flowering imo. On the contrary, I Hope that plant Will shift full speed in flower rather than sitting there wondering if its veg or flower. Looking at my plants every year I constantly see that plants stall A few days when They switch before showing first signs of flower mode.

But thats theory for now. Have A few months to think about it. I strongly believe that what is done indoor can be applied outdoor, just needs to be tested, fine-tuned & dialed-in.

Like i said. Outdoor plants stretch longer then inside because they are starting to flower slow. Its a longer stretch then u get in a depp.
Give the theory a shot. I would use one of those cheap 10$ light meters instead of counting on a daylight table.
How were your N levels? I have seen plants start flowering earlier in gardens that has lower n levels. But it's weird. Even though they start flowering weeks earlier, they finish on the same day.

Keep in mind in the spring time most plants will flower with only 14.5 hours of light. Not sure exactly why my plants don't start flowering till mid august.

I use rain water and 1/4 of prescribed dosage of nutes. This year has been the first year that all leafs from all plants looked great from start to end. I usually get some cal/mag defficiency spots but not this year. So N was not too high.

I like your experiment. Sounds pretty cool. Out of curiosity, why don't you just light depp?

I would think at 10 meters it would be hard to conceal smell, Cat may be out of the bag on that issue.

If you could get away with just 5-10 minutes of light during night times as a way to keep plants in veg from 7/15 -8/15, once you stopped night light they would flower.

Possibly cover house while lit or simply have light come on at different times.

Or what would probably be more low key would be to put solar powered night lights that people put along walkways in the greenhouse from 7/15 - 8/15. Put a few on a path to the greenhouse as well for show.

I agree with CrushnYuba on plants taking longer to finish outdoors versus in. I do what I described above and plants take easily 3-4 weeks longer to get any amber trichomes to show.

As far as choosing between more progressive days of dark or three full dark before flowering, I have no experience trying that but it sounds not worthwhile. Or at least hard to verify/quantify any benefit.
