Ozone generators are able to sterilize a grow room in a matter of minutes. This will save you plenty of time and will not wreak a lasting impact on your plants. These machines are very complex and mimic the conditions of the earth’s outer ozone layer. The benefit of ozone in the room is to wage a war on pathogens, get rid of pesky mould, and sterilize equipment. Many generators are portable and becoming affordable to generate ozone in your room.
Ozone is a gas that encircles the earth; it is composing what is called the ozone layer and is colourless and unstable with a potent odour. It has excellent oxidizing properties and is formed by electrical discharges of oxygen or by light that is ultraviolet. It has three atoms (O3) in its’ molecule as opposed to only the two that oxygen (O2) has.
Ozone is helpful as it is a very strong oxidizing agent, even more powerful than something like chlorine bleach. It is used to remove all different kinds of harmful, free-floating molecules from the surface of say your grow tent or the table in your grow room. The third oxygen atom of the molecule will leave it and bind to a new substance such as a pathogen and will then alter that pathogen’s original chemical composition.
Give your a supply of ozone and it will act to get rid of the fungus, bacteria, spores, mould, or any other biological compound that would harm a marijuana plant. They are great at keeping your plant safe. The generators will replicate and produce the triatomic O3 which then pumps your tent or grow room up with sterilizing molecules, all with a simple flick of a switch. But be careful, it can be harmful to humans, so use some caution.
