This is a picture of lettuce, lettuce along with spinach, wheat and other plants are classified as long day plants. Long day plants mean that they will only flower during very long periods of sunshine such as late spring into summer. It will only flower after being exposed to light periods longer than a certain critical length. Short day plants are just the opposite, they will only flower if exposed to less than twelve hours of sunlight.
