The Plant Growth Facility is located on the roof of Nipissing University's H-Wing. This facility houses two Conviron PGR14 computer controlled growth chambers. These chambers are capable of being programmed to regulate humidity, temperature and light over a 24 hour period. It also houses a greenhouse which has shading and temperature control and moveable benches that allow plant researchers to conduct large experiments in a controlled environment. There are also plans to institute a hydroponics facility in the greenhouse area of the Plant Growth Facility.
