 If  you  can  maintain  Temp  below  30  then  try  Java  Moss.  CPU  fan  ill  do  a  good  job  lowering  the  temperature  of  a  small  tank.

 It  grew  well  for  me  at  temperatures  from  27-32  at  times.  Usually  between  29-31  degrees
 
         
 
 But  35  degrees,  that's  likely  to  be  moss  soup  Sad

 Abhi....  I  think  you  are  too  much  confused  and  mixing  up  different  things  together.
 
 Mosses  are  from  Cooler  part  of  the  world.  Thats  why  they  need  cold  water  to  grow.  In  north  India  Summer  water  temperature  goes  upto  40  degree,  so  we  always  failed  to  keep  moss.  But  keep  the  tank  in  a  AC  room  or  putting  a  Fan  top  of  the  tank  will  reduce  the  water  temperature  and  if  it  is  less  than  26  degree  the  moss  will  grow  fine.  That  means  we  are  simulating  a  colder  environment  inside  the  tank  artificially  even  when  the  outside  temperature  is  high.  So  whatever  is  your  room  temperature,  keep  the  water  Temperature  below  28  if  you  want  to  grow  moss.
 
 Now  why  plants  close  leaves  after  evening  is  completely  different  scenario.  At  day  time  while  doing  the  photosynthesis  plants  opens  the  leaves  so  they  get  more  sunlight  to  absorb.  But  after  Sunset,  they  close  the  leaves  cause  they  stop  doing  photosynthesis  .  The  same  thing  happens  in  our  aquariums.  Plants  are  just  following  their  natural  instinct.   Smile  
 
 HTH.   Thumb Up

 I  put  on  lights  of  my  tank  at  1  noon  and  switch  it  off  at  12  night...my  plants  open  leaves  when  I  put  on  the  lights  and  close  when  I  put  off...Tirtha  is  absolutely  right...
