@envgen yes, but it's done with special types of lights, and I don't think normal lights disturb it.

@envgen so if the light is full-spectrum or creating a lot of heat then yes, some plants need a day/night cycle to allow their stomata to open for gas exchange and absorb co2 but it actually depends on the plant.

tldr; yes, but the kind of light on your bedstand probably isn’t bright enough to bother them.

also this is an extremely cute question.

@envgen honestly need someone to care about me as much as you care about your plants

@envgen this is the cutest most wholesome thing I've read in weeks
