In glowing terms
A glowing plant that could provide a sustainable light source has caught the imagination of backers on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Backers are promised seeds for glowing plants, although delivery will not be until next May. It means that in the future trees could act as street lights. Inspired by fireflies, the team is using off-the-shelf methods to create real glowing plants in a do-it-yourself bio lab. The team has chosen the mustard plant as it is easy to experiment with, but hopes that the same process will work for a rose, which is more commercially appealing.
