- "But look at these plants. Bioluminescence, the ability of plants and animals to give off light. My sister, Paige, and I used to go exploring on D'Qar, and we found a cave full of plants like this once."
- ―Rose Tico
Bioluminescence was the production of light by certain living organisms. Typically, those organisms thrived in environments where light was limited, such as deep sea beds or caverns. Bioluminescence was used for a variety of purposes, including attracting pollinators and prey.
Because the planet Umbara was constantly submerged in darkness, bioluminescent plants like the Zabrak spine were common there. Such plants were also common in the darkest depths of Mon Cala's oceans, as exemplified by the Mon Cal microplankton.
