24/7 lighting for Sundews?

In my opinion, plants need to sleep, 24/7 is very stressful and could cause health issues in the long term.


I tried 24 hour lighting for a few months when I first started out, my plants were never 100% healthy or happy. I found them looking very tired & dry. Now I have a timer that turns on the lights at 8am every morning & off at 1am. They seem to enjoy the 7 hours of rest as they're much healthier and don't need as much water now!
