RE:[APD] Dosing when lights are on or off???

I dose at night.  I though plants grow at night, dose this mean they take up ferts at night?  And I've read that the lights might break up the iron bond?  I don't know.  I don't think it is critical, just my opinion.

I dose ferrous gluconate on a daily basis (Same iron as in Seachem 
products). Plants consume the thing in a matter of few hours. But work 
schedule sometime doesn't allow me to see my tank when lights are on. 
So my 
question is - on those busy days - does it make sense to dose at 
I mean - would plants consume it and then use it for photosynthesis the 
after? What's the ideal strategy? Dose the minutes lights are on?
