At present work light emission was observed from apex of alive cotton cell-hair (Tashkent-1, 108-F G. hirsutum L., C-6030, C-6524 G. barbadense L. and Turfan gusa G. herbaccum) at difference developmental stages. To visualize light emission a replica-print method has been used to see not visible UV light. The alive cotton cell-fibers from fresh cotton boll has been detached and emerged into polymer emulsion (polymethylmethacrylate, gelatin, polyvinylpyrrolidone). After long time exposition (12h) )cotton cell-fibers has been detached and produced replica on polymer substrate has been investigated under convenient optical microscope. In result we observed directed spur near apex of cell. We suppose that this spur is result polymer molecules destruction in area of light emission from end point of cotton cell.
