Aside from being freakin' cool, this cold prove to be a useful technology fo us.  It could be useful in iding wild harvested plants(one could compare the uv pattern to one of an already id'd plant)  Also in propogation, some stamens and pistols will fluoresce only when unpollinated)  Check out the link, tons of plant examples!

Very very interesting stuff...Very well could be useful for IDing herbs and plants.

Some of my observations:

HBWR: Mature Leaves are a deep/red slight fuscia mix, immature leaves and stems are a ghostly grey/green.

Sun-opener- Leaves deep red.

Yopo: My leaves weren't open so i'll check when they open up.

Catnip:  My catnip is flowering, again the leaves were red, but the flowers did gloe, the stamens brightly so(only on a few, i assume these to be virgin)  I touched my finger to the glowing stamen of one of the flowers and could easily see the pollen left on my finger.  I'm going to try and transfer this to one of the other glowing flowers and see if it darkens.

Tried to get pic but it was too dark to get a clear image.

That looks pretty cool. So, which flowers look the most interesting under a blacklight and where can I get them? I'm sure they'd be much more impressive to some girls than the usual gift of roses.

Nevermind, I guess this page answers a lot of my own questions for me.

This is indeed a cool phenomenon. It has been known about for quite a while. David Attenburough talks about it in his documentary, 'The secret life of plants'. Apparently bees see in UV, and a lot of flowers that are popular with bees that look normal or boring to us are actually covered in trippy UV patterns. Bees can see like this because the sun is actually throwing out a hell of a lot of UV light as well as our normal visual spectrum of light, but the 'normal' spectrums are so strong in ordinary daylight that it drowns out the UV aspects. Thats why when we look at stuff with UV it has to be dark. Try using a UV light in the day it doesn't do shit. For the bees, though, their photoreceptors are tuned toward the UV end of the spectrum. They probably can't even see colours like red, at the opposite end of the spectrum.

Hmmm could this concept perhaps be used on mushrooms? Imagine how much simpler identification would be....

I was pondering the same thing...we need pictures of myco uv signatures to determine if this is plausible, ie they are unique enough...

Nope, shrooms didn't evolve to have UV patterns on them, because they aren't pollinated by bees like many flowers are. Infact they aren't pollinated at all. Not to mention the fact that they mostly grow in dimly lit, indirect sunlight kind of spaces, I would be very doubtful that they would have any interesting UV traits. I've looked at a few species of shroom under UV including cubes, and they didn't really look all that interesting, except for a slight change in colour, typical of a UV environment.

Still, I'd imagine those bioluminescent shrooms would probably look ultra glowey under UV.

I'm confused. Are these pictures of what these flowers look like to human eyes under a blacklight, or are these pictures of flowers taken with UV film?

UV film captures images from invisible UV rays.

UV photography is very interesting
The use of it with plants is just amazing!

After reading the text, I would say that he uses UV film ( or sensor).
