Lettuce

Long-day plants are those that require a long period of exposure to light each day in order to produce flowers.Plants use environmental cues such as amount of light and temperature to time their development to the season of the year. In the picture above, lettuce would be an example of a long-day plant, because it is being exposed to light in periods longer than a certain critical length.
