    If glowing in the dark is what you want, don't look for genetic modification. Grab a black light instead, you'll see most of them glow.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    It's stoner slang for "cool" basically.

    To the OP, it's not really something you can do at home. SerMuncherIV is right that it is likely not financially viable for a company to genetically modify a CP. I'm not sure if I'd like to own one, but I would be curious to see what some plants look like with non-naturally occurring colors.

    While that would be pretty dank, if this was a thing, id like to see them do other things like make N. bicalcarata fangs HUGE.

    While that would be awesome, that's not how genetic modification works. In order to do that someone has to either discover the gene sequence to cause that particular trait or find another species with that trait and put the gene from that species into an N. Bicalcarata. The odds are 1:1,000,000 of the first one happening and I don't think their are any other plants with that fanged trait. For example, glofish get their genes from coral and a few other species. It would be easier to selectively breed for the the long fanged trait in my opinion.

    I honestly do not understand this overobsession with genetically modified garbage.
    These plants are perfectly adapted and genetically varied / colored, and have been for hundreds of years.
    We have purples, blacks, whites, ones with fangs, ones with teeth, and absolute goliaths.
    What is it that you could possibly be wanting to modify further from natural perfection?
