Mexican Sunflower Leaves Sometimes Look Stressed at Night

Mariano added on July 17, 2014 | Answered

The leaves look stressed and down when I see them in the morning but later in the day they are nice and green. Is this normal?

It probably has to do with moisture and the way the plants handle dry environment, shutting down their processes during the hottest part of the day and the night -- that's when they look wilted -- then opening stomata, and moving moisture stored in their roots during the night into the plant tissues when the sun is shining.
