Dear Riki,
               I would be most surprised if any plants produced oxygen at
night unless you shine a light on them. Most plants cannot store enough
oxygen to continue giving it out at night without replenishment from a light
source; I would be most interested to know of any exceptions. Most plants
give out carbon dioxide at night and take in oxygen, so if you have a lot of
plants or a big one, best have ventilation, or at least a small low-power
light shining on them,   regards, tony bassett,
