Why is it wrong to pluck flowers or leaves at night ?

Dear student.

There is no scientific reason behind your query. It is a traditional superstitious belief where people consider that plucking flowers or leaves during night brings bad luck.

It is wrong to pluck flowers or leaves in the night because plants sleep in night as we do.
They do not perform photosynthesis at night because of the absence of sunlight so, this is the time of rest for the plants they take energy from the food produced during photosynthesis at night.

As you would know that during the presence , the plants and trees perform photo synthesis.It is kind of that are doing their work during the day. But night since there is no sunlight, the tree is kind of sleeping.... Note: You should never pluck flowers or leaves whether it is day or night.
