et al., 2003 , 2010 ; Townsend-Small and Czimczik, 2010 ). However, little is known regarding the capacity of managed turfgrass stands for short-term carbon gain or carbon loss with respect to the balance of canopy photosynthetic CO 2 uptake and

without protective overhead structures such as high tunnels or shade nets ( Strik et al., 2007 ). Currently, a greater understanding of cultivar-specific responses to increasing irradiance is needed to avoid reduced photosynthetic capacity caused by high

Phalaenopsis leaves. Thus, the light requirement for maximal photosynthetic ability in ‘TS97’ requires further examination. Daylength also affects photosynthetic capacities in CAM plants. In general, short daylengths promote nocturnal stomata opening and
