We investigated the diurnal dependence of the hypocotyl-growth responses to shade under sunlight-night cycles in Arabidopsis thaliana. Afternoon shade events promoted hypocotyl growth, while morning shade was ineffective. The lhy-D, elf3, lux, pif4 pif5, toc1, and quadruple della mutants retained...
