Wrong end of the season for the Northern Hemisphere. You guys are coming into your grow season, and should expect flowering to start around September.


There is, however, a way to do it, but it involves growing the plants under lights at a lengthy photoperiod, much longer than the daylight hours they will experience outdoors. Then, while they are used to the ~20 odd hour indoor day, simply put them outside in the sun. The shock of the substantial reduction in light hours will induce flowering, even though the days will be getting longer. Flowering should be complete, or near enough complete before the plant recognizes that it should actually be growing instead.


This technique does usually require though, for best results, that the plants be placed outside at least 10 weeks before the summer solstice, otherwise the tendency to ignore flowering will be more evident. And that's about now.
