Haha, it sure is crazy, it there...wooo :D

Wow, that's quite a list of plant being blacklisted :(
most probably, you can only get from hobbyist, if this plant is blacklisted as well.

Found your post, did a reply there :D...yes, I think you can alter the biological clock of the plant, but it won't be an immediate change, you need time for them to recognize the lighting period. I guess, if there's no natural sunlight present, and the plant have to depend fully on artificial light, then changing their biological clock would be much easy...just my opinion :D
