Use of OZONE in shroom growing
    #1018087 - 11/03/02 12:03 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I read in my herb growin' book, that ozone (O3, oxygen with a third unstable oxygen atom) is a powerful STERILICANT, as well as a deodorizer. So I started wondering about a possible application of ozone for both the jar innoculation and fruiting stages of shroom growth. Is this a good idea, and if so, how would you apply it to shroom  growin'  please? :smile:

Well, I can say this, producing enough ozone for an area of your home is a lot different than creating an atmospheric quantity. Ozone is created when electricity arcs through the air. Lightning thunderstorms create tons of it. The problem is it only takes a little bit of man made bullshit to destroy a ton of it. Even if scientists replaced it, another group of scientists somewhere else would be at work destroying it again

It is expensive to make, mine uses 250 watts. Still what is that compared to a 1000w halide some herb growers use? I built my ozone machine. Here'z how you do that.... :grin:

Anyways I was wondering about it especially as an added measure for innoc time, thanks. :cool:

Ozone can also be created by the action of ultraviolet light on regular oxygen (this is what happens in the upper atmosphere - ever wonder why there's a 'hole' in the ozone layer where the sun shine is weakest or non-existent for half the year?). I have an ultraviolet ozone generator which is used in hot tubs - air passes through a chamber with an ultravoilet light and then out through a tube which is used to direct it through the water. This allows you to greatly reduce or eliminate chlorine in the water. The city of Paris, France uses ozone instead of chlorine to treat their drinking water.

Id imagine ozone use in the fruiting stage of mushroom cultivation would not be a good idea. My theory is that it would probably reduce potency. Here is why. O3 has the extra unstable atom. The extra unstable atom is oxidizing odors ect.
We know already that normal oxygen can oxidize psilocybin, so just imagine using ozone with its extra atom that it readily gives up close to your mushies.

Just a thought  :smile:

Ozone works great for reducing contamin when innoculanting. I keep it away from fruiting mushrooms though. I think that Ozone should be combined with a HEPA air filter. In my experience the contamination rate when way way down after I put an Ozone generator in my kitchen.
