[Market-farming] Wala Wala Bulbing Early

I planted some wala wala onions in flats in October and left them  
under constant light. A couple of weeks ago when they started to bulb  
I realized my error and put a timer on the lights and gave them 8-10  
hours of light per day.

Has anyone had experience reducing the photoperiod after the onions  
have started to bulb and still had them produce good size onions at  
the proper time? I have been advised that I have triggered the  
reproductive process and the onions will proceed to maturity early  
even though they are very tiny now.
