My lights are on and my ambulia is closing up. Is this happening because I have had the lights on more than 12 hours?

Many plants will close up if the lights are on more than 12 hours. I'm surprised the plant union has not filed a grievance against you for attempting to force the plants to work beyond their contract hours. If you keep this up the plant union might bring in thugs (algae) to teach you a lesson.

This is normal for Ambulia to do this. The same happens to Rotala Wallichi.

That was really funny Rex, almost wet myself with laughter, but still I think it was a genuine question.

I know it was. And I answered it in the first sentence.
