Posted:hi itamaer! welcome my friend!
here are some answers!
by glow colours do you mean day-glow or electroglow?
the practice poi are typically of 'day glow' colours(all neon-like! ), and the battery-operated poi are electroglow colours (red, green & blue elements are available.)

day-glow colours can be seen both at night and at low light if you're near a UV source. They appear most vibrant near a UV source if they are specifically uv-reactive, not just merely bright. All the practice poi also look cool during the middle of the day - something most firetoys unadorned, have trouble with.
here is an example of dusk twirling with comet-poi:

electroglow colours appear brightest with the least ambient light. yes they will sppear in pale light (ie late evening, dusk) but will be at their most vibrant in the dark. Especially if they are switched on .
I have found the electroglow equipment available from here to be brighter under UV, but not as uv-reactive as some comet-poi.
here is an example of night twirling with electroglows:

please do not eat poi. they are for sharing.
