The cone-shaped, clustered flowers lie on the long, slender stems that bear long, narrow leaves with parallel venation.

This perennial flower is native to South Asia, where the native people use them in their cuisines and medicines.

Do Torch Flowers Glow In Real Life?

Torch Flower in the game Minecraft can glow and produce a torch flame. However, Torch Ginger does not glow in real life.

In fact, the Ginger Torch has the word Torch in it due to the cone-like appearance of its flower.

However, the flowers are smooth and shiny and can gleam if the sunlight beam appears on them. But they do not produce light themselves.

Moreover, due to their shiny petals, you can also make them glow by using artificial light.

All you need to do is glow the artificial blue light towards the direction of Ginger Torch’s petals. The blue light on the petals will make them look glowing.

Is There A Flower That Glows In The Dark?

There are no flowers or plants that produce light, as this activity is beyond the plant’s ability.

Moreover, no plants have gained such mechanisms that make them glow with the light produced by their own.

Still, you can find a glowing aquarium fish, the Glofish. Although it’s not a plant but an animal, the genetic modification of this fish produces fluorescent proteins.

Moreover, you can also find a cactus named Night-Blooming Cereus that can glow in the dark. But, the light is not its own. Instead, the plant reflects the light that makes them glow in the dark. 

Thus, there are no plants that glow with their own light. If you find such flowers, it may be due to genetic modification or mutation.

However, you can make the plant glow in the dark using fluorescent light towards the bright petals.

Thus, there are no flowers like the Torch flower in the Game Minecraft. The flower is just an imaginary interpretation just like Vivisteria flower.
