    Is it possible by using certain photo periods or avoiding certain temperatures to totally avoid flowering.

    I would assume it is one of those two environmental factors that "tell" the plant it is time to flower.

    My VFTs are growing so well right now I would really like to avoid having them even start to flower.

    Thanx for any thaughts or sugestions.

    I don't know about altering photoperiod and temps, but snipping the flower stalk REALLY IS the easiest solution. When you think about it, neither photoperiod nor temp are at their peak when VFT's initiate flowering. I'm not comfortable with altering light and heat. They REALLY DO need both, especially light
