Sleeping during the nighttime helps you grow taller; does daytime naps do the same thing?

I actually find myself sleeping quite a bit during the daytime. Maybe around 4-5 hours when I’m tired.

So far I’ve only heard that nighttime sleeping helps you grow taller. Is it the same for sleeping during the daytime?

ANSWER:

It appears to be the depth of sleep that counts…
“Most HGH is secreted during deep slow-wave sleep, when brain waves differ most from those of an awake, alert mind. HGH secretion reaches its peak, during puberty.”
