Inexpensive plant growth chambers can be built from standard components manufactured for other purposes. A working unit 6' x 6' in size assembled from a refrigerated meat storage box and general line fluorescent lamps is described. Light intensities up to 1800 ft-c at one foot and temperatures, with full light load, down to 8 ° C can be maintained.
