What happens to plants at night?
Photosynthesis stops and (cellular) respiration (the dark cycle) begins.
Photosynthesis only happens in plants and fungi, while respiration happens with animals. In the process of photosynthesis, plants take in CO2 and water and they produce oxygen and glucose. In the process of respiration, animals take in the oxygen and glucose that the plants produce and release CO2 and water, which the plants take in. This all fit to become a cycle, which is why we and plants support one another. In the night, however…
Day flowering plants are normally pollinated by insects or animals that are active during the day e.g. bees, butterflies and birds. Night flowering plants are pollinated by insects or animals that are active at night such as bats and moths. Night flowering plants are normally very heavily scented to attract insects where as day flowering plants use both sent and visual tools to attract pollinators.
