    I wonder why it's targeted towards C4 plants? Are you not able to control CO2 levels?

    It could be that they generally require greater light/heat intensities and not all chambers can provide this. For example, we do a lot of corn (C4 plant) research and it would not be possible under fluorescent lighting. There are other types of chambers with fluorescents. They are cheaper, more common, smaller, tend to run cooler, and usually handle stuff like Arabidopsis.

    Our chambers aren't used for CO2 studies, but I imagine that if someone wanted to, a few canisters and some sealant would work nicely.

    I don't know the answer though and that's just a guess. I also saw the ad and wondered why C4 plants were emphasized.
