Plants like this one have been found in areas around the North Sea, in regions of what used to be the Benelux, completely submerged under water now. The region was quite well known in the 20th century for its luminous streets. These plants must have muted in a still unknown way by incorporating electrical elements which allows them to present a luminous area in their bodies when approached by alive elements. The light becomes stronger when the subject approaches closer and closer. Their flowers are made of isolated electrical ribbons, detecting the movement occurring near them. The plants are visible from space."
