Good question @Nick Carder :)
The reasons why you might employ this method (anecdotal):
  • Reduce stretch where space is limited or this is a desirable outcome
  • Accelerate onset of flowering
The above may be better influenced by training and or strain choice.
It's quite possible that the slightly faster finish would be offset by a corresponding reduction in yield.
I'd avoid this experiment if you have low lights off temps.
I think a dark period at the end of flower (prior to harvest) might be a better option.

I never thought about that, a long dark period at the end of flowering makes much more sense, more in keeping with the long darker nights of fall like in nature. On my scale I’m sure it won’t make a lot of difference any
