The second cause might be that there was a dramatic change in the lighting environment.
Similarly, you may ask, how do you stop a plant from flowering?
Pinch off the new growth tips of foliage plants, such as basil (Ocimum basilicum), frequently to encourage constant production of new leaves and delay flowering and seed production. Pinch off flowers immediately as they begin to develop because plants stop producing abundant foliage in favor of flowers.
How long does pre flowering last?

When should you top outdoor plants?

Can I cut a bud off my plant?

You can also add mulch and ground cover to the area, as well as watering regularly in order to keep the soil temperature down.
Can I harvest one bud at a time?
