Someone asked me about the Air Tiger Ozone Generator which uses UV light to generate ozone for hydroponic and indoor plants. The benefits of using an ozone generator in your greenhouse includes removing odors from mildew, insecticides, mold, etc. It will aslo sterilize grow areas. It also claims to inhibit spider mites inside greenhouses, but I'm not sure whether that is from the Ozone harming them or the UV light itself which mites do not like.
Ozone has long been used for air purification. Ozone travels out into space and hence can easily treat large areas as the tiger does (5000 sq.ft.). While UV bulbs can be used to generate Ozone, other forms of ozone machines (non-UV) are more effective and do not need replacement as the Air Tiger ozone generator does. You can find some Chinese brands that use timed ozone.

The smell of ozone is apparent, although many people like myself like the "hospital-like" cleanliness of the smell. Ozone is naturally occurring in nature, and the smell of ozone is apparent after a lightening storm which creates ozone in abundance.
Most of the online reviews of the Air Tiger reflect well on it.
What would I do for a greenhouse or indoor garden? Since ozone can be harmful to human lungs I am more inclined by adjustable ozone machines like this..
