When the evening drops its curtain, the stage turns into a soothing one where fantasy embraces you and me. The night is calm but the heart is vibrant. Everything is just around the corner and we are ready to illuminate the mysterious night with ever-brilliant glowing plants. This marks the dawn of a new era of ornamental plants. A novel vein absorption approach coupled with the state-of-the-art high entropy material technology is used to decorate the plant leaf, which is not at all a genetically modified way, thus preserving the nature of the plant and yet giving a brand-new, remarkable colorful outlook for the plant. As a result, plant can glow and show luminous light in various colors when the night comes. A visual feast for a relaxing and enriched night. The three primary colors of RGB are the essence of the plant’s illumination, hence when walking into a glowing plant garden, one would enjoy the privilege to receive light with a "spectrum" that can be tailored to suit one’s need. A glowing plant garden would show an unprecedent visual art that extends the panoramic landscape art. The artery environment would induce the five basic human senses, including touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste, to create a therapeutic atmosphere to heal and purify the soul. One can render such a new experience to build a cozy, healing oasis at home. Another spectacular feature of the glowing plant is to create more desirable plant photoperiods for the agriculture industry. When the plant emits light during the night hours, the chlorophyll in the chloroplast is excited to continue the photosynthetic light reaction without sunlight. This is a delightful carbon-negative ideal of reducing the carbon dioxide and saving the energy. Glowing plant thereby reaches not only the United Nations sustainable development goals but also the integration of cultural creation and artistic therapy.
