This question is not about special plants like Tulasi.

I am asking about other plants that may not be as important as Tulasi.

Is it allowed to pluck leaves or cut branches from plants or trees after sunset?

  • Plants make food during day, so a night cutting involves delay to recupe. – Narasimham May 3 at 11:44

Not only cutting branches or leaves, even going near to trees at night is not permitted.

Manusmriti 4:73:- Let him not enter a walled village or house except by the gate, and by night let him keep away from trees.

  • The verse doesn't say it is prohibited but it say it is not recommended. – Dark Knight May 2 at 18:41
