Five of the E15 chambers were retrofit in 2018 with dimmable full spectrum white and far-red Valoya LED lights.  One of the E15s was retrofit in 2014 with T5 fluorescent and halogen lights. Light levels depend on distance of plant canopy from the lamps, the age of the lamps, and the temperature in the chamber. An independent light sensor is available from the Coordinators if you wish to check your light levels during an experiment.

Relative Humidity: Additive humidity is available, but temperature dependent. Consult with Phytotron Coordinators.

Six E15s are available in the Phytotron. One of the six has extended growth height.
