Default glowing mushroom article

Sadly this one is in German, but maybe some find it interesting:
http://www.cybervisuals.ch/work/biol...ende_pilze.pdf
Biolumineszenz
Basically it says that there are quite a few biolumi mushrooms, some of them even very common in temperate climates. It also says, that glowing mushrooms and glowing wood (with mushroom mycelium) have been used in (pre-)history as light sources for houses, as glowing jewelry, to mark paths in the forest that are visible at night and as a transportable light source to guide people through the forest at night.

There are some photos, some only needed an exposure time of some seconds, which means that the light is considerable. Not as bright as a candle though. They also seem to have linked descriptions on how to grow these mushrooms. I might try that

Oh yeah, I sort of considered getting that once, but I'm no good at maintaining plants. Maybe sometime in the future

Irayo for the link to the German article on the glowing mushrooms, Auroraglacialis. I had little problem understanding it, I sometimes go to the German threads on Learn Navi, and here and lurk a lot, but occaisionally post there as well. I have started an E-subscription with the Munchner Merkur to refresh my memory banks on the German that I have not used since I left Germany in 1982.
I have noticed something. When I use the portion of my brain that knew how to speak German very well, my ability to learn Na'vi is enhanced. As soon as my German gets just a LIIIITLE bit better, I will start conversing on the German sites, it will help my learning Na'vi.

Pretty cool, definitely~!

Found this when I went googling around for more info .. Gold nanoparticles can cause plants to glow in the dark some scientists have discovered!

Gold nanoparticles that make leaves glow in the dark

Now where can one find gold nanoparticles .... ?

Nice one, that kit. I dont get the nanoparticle thing though. It claims that no energy source is needed, but the energy for the light has to come somewhere...

Light is energy... - in this case, it comes from bioelectric energy (the same as bioluminescence from, for example, luciferase) - in the linked case, from photosynthesis during daytime, although if this is deployed as an LED-like technology, it will likely then use a normal current, I'd guess.

Irayo for the links Aurora y Raiden the glowing mushrooms on the photos give a clear Pandoran impression I know that some Amazonian women put glowing plants & wigs & even beetles in their hair as adornments.

hehe languages do that to you the more languages you learn, the more they seem to "conspire". I started learning Italian after I already knew English, French & German (learned in that order) - & when I was trying to remember a new Italian word, the words from the previous languages were coming to my memory on LIFO (last in first out) basis: German-French-English - and then Italian! go figure...
I even learned a bit of Arabic later on - but I lost some languages due to the lack of practice they like attention & if they feel they're not getting it, they feel abandoned & go away I lost three of them this way, so may my sad language story be a lesson for those who learn languages, & are also willing to learn from - somebody else's - mistakes!

OK now back to glowing mushrooms & plants

But I REAAAAALLLY want that moss that twinkles when you step on it!
I once read a Heinlein book where the guy's living room floor had a grass carpet.
The only grass left on our planet. Now I want my bathroom to have a moss floor and a natural stone waterfall with bioluminesent plants all over!

WATCH WHAT YOU ASK FOR, oeya yawnetu. I'm not sure about the moss, but I CAN do it sub tropical after we build the second roof over the first, allowing us to super insulate the 13 by 22 foot master bathroom off the north wall of our bedroom. I could get five or six sets of the glowing mushrooms, a couple of rubber plants, and if we were willing to put up some grow-lux lights out of our sight, a Hibiscus plant or two, and with the room heated in the winter, we even could grow a banana tree in the south west corner of the room, but it will never produce any fruit. the floor would be beach sand, six inches thick, the free form hot tub would go into the ground, in the north east corner, with the lava rock water fall draining into it.
Before any of you folks Poo-Poo what I am saying, I have taught oeya Ateyo a LOT about home construction as the two of us have built our own hanger home for 1/100th of what it would cost us to have someone else to do it. Yes we CAN build it exactly as what I am saying here, I just want to see if she is willing to invest the sweat equity in front of moeya soaia.
Your loving muntxate, Niri Te

KOSMAN! Our own piece of Pandora! You've GOT IT, oeya yawnete! If you can figure out the filtration system, we've got it made! Shower first under the waterfall ?!?
Large flat rock to dry off on?

Oeya yawnetu, On the ceiling, I could paint the summer constellations as they would appear in Samoa complete with the Southern Cross, with flouresent white paint, and hide two black lights out of sight. THEN we will put a "mood CD" of surf crashing on the shore, what do you think??

TEWTI! The best of both worlds! Maybe we can get the iridescent tree frogs or have aquariums built into the walls! I could paint a mural across all the walls of a Pandoran jungle!
