  Re: [Aroid-l] Plants that glow in the dark.

well unfortunately we wouldn't save money, we'd be spending money for
nothing I fear. Lining Airstrips with biolumenescent plants would be a
waste as the incoming airplanes wouldn't be able to view them from so far
up. True there is a type of biolumenescence naturally occuring in the sea
but to take that living material and play god with it just doesn't seem
right. And I'd love to see the outcome of a refrigerator that has
biolumenescence in it to light it up, infecting all foods held
within...lord knows what that'd do to our systems...lol....I'd like to
see the preservation of native plants and less hybridizations and
manipulation of plants.

Good questions and comments though, makes me think further..

there was a sad time when the Welsh some of them used the bodies of
rotting fish which gave off some dim light, to enable them to mine deeply
in the earth, people who did not have miners lamps.
