Abstract It used to be rare to come across plants that bind CO2 mainly at night: CAMplants. But it’s no longer an exception in the horticultural sector. Nowadays the best-selling pot plant in the Netherlands – phalaenopsis – belongs to this group. This then raises questions such as: When do CAM-plants behave according to the book and when don’t they? And when does it make sense to dose with CO2 and provide lighting?
