Hi:
I'm in college and saw a photo of a tobacco plant glowing in a darkened =
room after being watered with a chemical. The luciferin gene had been =
inserted into the plant to make this effect.
Does anyone know if this can be done at home, or if the seeds are =
available for sale anywhere??

Thanks.

John Berger
