Glow In The Dark Roses


Glow in the Dark Roses - Interflora

This Halloween Interflora have treated us to the amazing invention of Glow in the Dark Roses. As soon as I heard about them I was ridiculously excited, and couldn't wait to see them for myself. During the day, the roses are a beautiful creamy white, and by night they transform into a spooky luminous green. I think the glow in the dark formula is fuelled by light, as I found that the longer they were left in a bright light, the brighter the glow would be in the dark. They were super hard to photograph in the dark, so the last two photos really don't do them justice!

The only downside to the product to me, is the lifespan. My roses were sent on Wednesday, and arrived Thursday evening, and the first three photos I took straight away. I think the glow in the dark formula really shortens the life of the roses, as today they really are looking a bit worse for wear (drooping and yellowing - I can't envisage them lasting until Monday unfortunately), and I think if you were to order them for a Halloween party or a gift then you should order them the day before to make sure they look their best!

What do you think of this spooky idea? Do you like quirky things or prefer them to just do their normal job?

  4. They're awesome! Shame about the life span though :(

    Maybe you could get fake roses and paint them yourself then they will last :)


  5. hmmmm... maybe I can fake the luminous light by applying some liquid glow in the dark on the flowers :P
