New Age Fluorescent Flowers

The world of nature has often been turned upside down and inside out with genetically modified crops, new hybrids and whatever technology has thrown at it. 
And, fluorescent flowers is at best not a new thing as Bioconst, an Adelaide based company with strengths in plant science research and development has demonstrated with a range of sprayed on formulations of plant ink technologies. Illumination is by UV lighting from patented LED lighting.
However, what may be radical is DNA technology allowing for the flowering plant to come up with its own natural fluorescent generating protein!! Accordingly, BioSA, supported by the South Australian State government will have proprietary UV LED lighting combined with the innately bred fluorescent protein in  flowers to show forth the magnificence of a fluorescent display of florals unparalleled before this.
