Plants, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide

So plants give off oxygen during the day and carbon dioxide during the night. So my question is, does placing two plants in your bedroom mean that at night time (when you're trying to sleep) the plants are emitting carbon dioxide into the air in your bedroom? If so, would the quantum of carbon dioxide emitted by the plants meaningfully and adversely compromise the breathing air in the room at night when you're trying to sleep? Thanks!

A quick Google search appears to have answered my own question:

But I am curious, putting aside those few plants that actually release oxygen at night, would the average plant that releases carbon dioxide at night compromise the breathing air in the bedroom and to a meaningful degree?

Here is another forum where a similar questiion was raised:

The answer provided there seems to be the knee-jerk response that ignores that plants release carbon dioxide, not oxygen, at night.

There was a discussion pretty recently about this:

Do plants rob a room of oxygen at night?

Hi,I am lokesh from india,To a certain extent, this is true. Photosynthesis and metabolism are completely seperate processes going on at the same time. While photosynthesis�by definition�needs light to proceed, and therefore fluctuates greatly depending on the incident light strength, metabolism is roughly constant throughout the day. Since a lot of the plant's growth occurs during daylight hours, the rate of metabolism also fluctuates, because growth requires energy.

Lokesh, I was about to give you bonus points for actually providing relevant information, but then I found that you had simply copied and pasted from elsewhere on the internet. So now you are both a spammer and a plagiarist. For shame...

Oxygen plants made me lol, though.
