    I'm sure everyone has put one of those white flowers in colored water to make the edges of the petals that color. I was wondering if it would be possible to make a "Glow-In-The-Dark Flower", either with the use of a blacklight or without.

    I think the only problems would be finding a chemical that wouldn't kill the plant in the process...

    Thanks in advance

    There have been gentic experiments where they inserted a glo in he dark gene from various luinous seaweeds. So far they've come up with glow in the dark fish and pigs!
    So I guess it would be possible with flowers.

    I've heard that a lot of flowers that appear plain white to us actually have patterns that are revealed with a black light. Apparently quite a lot of insects can see slightly higher frequencies than us so the hidden patterns are still able to attract them.
