For plants photo period = morning right ?

Many tell me that it is good to have photo period in morning. .

my understanding is that there are planted tanks in four walls where actual sun never reaches and my understanding is that when plant lights get on is morning for our plants in tanks. .

Yes i understand this start and period should be very regular and plants develop habit of when to expect this "morning"

But am i right to believe that when photo period starts is morning for our plants in tank or is there any more complexity of actual human morning relation with plants in tank ?

It doesn't matter when your photo period starts. You could have your regular period come on at night and it wouldn't make any difference.

I believe a lot of the guys have the photo period start in the afternoon so they're able to enjoy the tank in the time that they're home from work.

Mom with the two previous posts. I have my lights come on at 3 in the afternoon so when I get home I can enjoy the tanks before bed. All tanks except for the one in my kids room. It comes on at bedtime for their nightlight.

Thanks everyone !

My tank also lights at 4 in the evening so that when i get back home i can see the beauty before going to bed. .

Glad to understand that what i was doing instinctively is not wrong because many ppl were confusing me that no it needs to be in the human morning and i was wondering how when tanks are in a location not having sun light in such cases any way. .

Thank you for helping me with your inputs. . Appreciate !!!!

Have a great day ahead !!!
