Scientists in the USA have made plants that light up. They hope their plant lights could replace electric lights and street lights. The team hopes the plant lights will help the environment. It said: "The vision is to make a plant that will [work] as a desk lamp…that you don't have to plug in.…powered by the energy…of the plant."

The idea for the plant lights came from fireflies. They put the thing in fireflies that makes them glow into spinach and watercress leaves. The plants glowed for nearly four hours. Scientists said they want to treat a young plant one time and have it light up for its lifetime. They said plant lights will be a part of our life.
