This isn't meant to be political but if these folks could spend half
as much time in trying to save endangered plants as they do with
creating frankenstein plants we'd all be better off. would I be
interested in a glow in the dark plant....probably not, would I ever
buy a glow in the dark plant? never. at least no man made and not
one that was a hybrid.

think of the money one could save on electric bills at airports. you
could line out the landing strips for night flying with
bioluminescent plants. we already have some kind of bioluminescence
in the sea, do we not? as algae. you could line city streets and save
money on electric bills that way. It is a wonderful idea! you could
also do away with the light inside the refrigerator, and find you
food at night by the glow of the vegetables therein.
