VPD night settings

Is there a way to incorporate VPD for night; (lights off) so there will be two VPD settings for day and night

VPD at night doesn’t really matter much, so I would strongly suggest you focus on other aspects of the environment while your plants are resting - pest mitigation, etc.

Night time VPD doesn’t really matter anywhere near as much as daytime, so do what keeps your plants healthy & happy, and whatever is convenient for you.

Some research I did (specifically on nighttime transpiration):

According to the best of my research the difference between day & night transpiration is pretty big. See the figures and referenced studies below. Where did you arrive at your numbers?
