Plant Growth Chambers and Rooms
"Can we grow potatoes in martian soil?"
If you take an empty glass jar, take it to your backyard and put it down over grass upside down, the grass inside the jar will grow much faster than the grass around it. This is because the conditions for growth have suddenly become better: the air inside the jar is warmer and there’s more moisture.
If you want to know which variants of a plant grow the fastest, you can’t just put them out in your yard and see reliable results. You will need an environment that is absolutely fair and homogeneous. Same temperature. Same moisture level and light amount. You get the point.
Plant growth chambers are used to study and grow life that is difficult to study under natural conditions. When you want to know which potato variety you should plant in a jungle to fight local famine, you can get the answers you need without travelling to an actual jungle. Many algae that would naturally be found on the shores of the sea can be cultivated for research in environmental chambers. Same goes for insects from rain forests.
Farming plants is also viable inside these chambers. Vegetables grown inside growing chambers or rooms are becoming more frequent. Medicinal plants such as cannabis can be easily grown locally.
