2. Long-Day Plant

This is a photograph of a basil plant. SomeĀ plants, like basil, require only a short night to flower. These are referred to as”long day” plants. These plants bloom only when they receive no less than 12 hours of light. Basil blooms when the days are long, during our sunny and warm summers.
