Speaking to Design Boom, the company said: “This technology enhances the beauty of flowers and foliage. Thanks to it, they display a new aesthetic by revealing magnificent veins and coloured shades, from purple to blue/green.”
While the company is staying mum on exactly what’s in the serum, the team says it’s not harmful to the environment.
How it works
The serum is administered into the plant through capillary action (the water, or in this case, the serum, can travel from the root upward through the xylem tissues of a plant.)
Once a plant has had the serum, it should stay fluorescent for three months.
Why make plants glow in the dark?
The fluorescent plants are currently used for sensory displays and light installations at events. Still, Aglaé hopes to further develop their idea, creating an electricity-free light solution.
Interestingly, this Aglaé isn’t the first company to dabble with bioluminescent plants, and we doubt they’ll be the last.
