Photosynthesis can take place during the time only when the Sun is shining plant has light. This is because during this process, the pigment absorb the light and the green tissue of the plant makes glucose.Plants always do respiration as the humans and animals,the plant can d both jobs in the day but in the dark it only can give out CO2.

Plants require carbon dioxide to grow and why not help them by increasing the level of carbon dioxide? Normally, this is something that is undesirable, since carbon dioxide is the original greenhouse gas, as our neighbouring planet Venus can testify. But in a controlled, genuine greenhouse environment, there is no real reason why the level of carbon dioxide should not be enhanced in some way.',

Indeed, tests have shown that increasing the level of carbon dioxide in a greenhouse to five hundred and fifty ppm will accelerate plant growth by thirty - forty %. The natural level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is around four hundred and fifty ppm, having increased from about two hundred and fifty ppm in the last ice-age, so this slight increase may not appear significant at first sight. The point of the matter is that the level of carbon dioxide in the average greenhouse with the ventilation system closed will drop sharply due to uptake by the plants and will lie around one hundred a ...more
