So Im new here but have a question I cant find a definitive answer too or any adequate answer.

Some background I have grown indoors and veg then flowered outdoors both successfully. So now that I have the mean next outdoor season I want to do a full-fledged outdoor grow. Currently thinking 20 plants, all will be clones but here is where the question comes in I want to put them out early as my last frost is early ie middle of may but I don’t want them to flower early.

So here comes the question what are my the best options for outdoor supplemental lighting?
Is my only option a cfl in clamp light above each plant my only option?
What about the industrial work lights on a tripod at the ends of each row?
could i get away with a 2cfl on a Y in the middle of every 4 plants?
