This works :

# simulate some data

mylist <- list(NULL)

for(i in 1:27) mylist[[i]] <- rnorm( rpois( 1, lambda=20 ) )

# execute

par( mfrow=c(9,3) ) par(mar = c(1,1,1,1), oma = c(1,1,1,1)) for(i in 1:27) plot( mylist[[i]] )

Also if you just want to plot the distribution values etc, then you can also try different possibilities such as

boxplot( mylist )
