The changes in the morphometric parameters of the heterotrophic callus cultures cells (in the tea plant (Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze) after their transfer to the light exposure conditions (16-hour photoperiod, illumination of 5 000 lux) were studied. Both in the control and in the experimental variants, a significant heterogeneity of the callus cells was revealed (in shape, size, degree of vacuolization). Already at the initial stages of light exposure (1 or 7 days), there was a decrease in their size. It is assumed that under these conditions the fission processes in in vitro tea cultures are activated.
