Are there luminescent plants in real life?

    Yes, there are.  It appears to be relatively common in fungi with 71 known species that glow.  Seven new luminescent mushroom species were recently discovered by a team at San Francisco State University in seven different countries (Belize, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Japan, Malaysia and Puerto Rico…makes me want to think about a career change).  See below for a picture of one species.
