Because my hair is medium, verging towards fine, texture, I can't plop for more than 10-15 minutes. If I go for any more than that, my curls get all wonky and deformed. If I plopped overnight, I feel fairly certain that my curls would look awful and stick out in weird, wonky ways.
I do a short 5 minute plop after applying my leave-in. Then I apply my styling jelly and, using a dry cloth, do a second 10-15 minute plop. This seems to work well for me.
