These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.
This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

i was flying to thunder bluff for some reason and i realized i didnt have the map all the way explored when i flew over what i’d like to call “acorn hell” since thats what first came to mind when i saw it
Drawn for this prompt in the HSWC bonus round. The fact that the female pharaoh has horns and fins and is accompanied by a glowing vampire might be enough to suggest this isn’t very historically accurate, but phooey to that! It was fun!
I was really confused by the “isn’t very historically accurate” remark until I realized that the geometric patterns are pretty typical New Kingdom (maybe say 1400 BCE?) designs, but the only overlap of glowing vampires with periods where the pharaoh would have had horns and fins would have been at least 200 years earlier. And honestly, that feels like pretty reasonable artistic license to me?
Is that… is that even healthy?
There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.
I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.
nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case
(I like glowy things)
