Could you explain that?

I suggested to add a comma after "spring":
In spring, the days get longer.

Does this mean that the days get longer and longer each day in spring, or simply that the days are longer in spring than in winter?

It perhaps can mean both.
My first thought is that the sentence means that once spring arrives, the days are longer than they were in the winter.

There is an unadopted Japanese sentences with the "day by day" meaning.

It means that the days get longer and longer. When you use "get" or "become" in the present tense it indicates an ongoing or continuous action.
