OK, how about a Tesla coil in an FC or Martha to make O3?
What would be the result on shrooms?

I was thinking the O3 would help with contamination and supplement the O2.
The big issue is toxicity by too much O3 in a living environment.
A small desktop coil with only a 1/2 to 1” spark would fit this role.

So far, ozone looks to be a very bad idea...

Not thinking the ozone would be good, but it would be the coolest fc ever.

Yeah, you need to be extra careful.

And I thought I made complicated FCs, lol.

 

I'm almost done making my contam-proof FC. It will hold 12 cakes, and requires a 150KV 3-phase power supply:

In all seriousness my early FC designs resembled the above picture more than I'd care to admit. But eventually my design abilities evolved and ultimately I ended up just covering a plastic bin with a wet towel.

My wife insists I use my engineering skills and make an automated Martha. I keep telling her that my little tub is more than enough.

I guess I’ll put the coil on top of my FC for looks.

FWIW, my first impression on reading the first few lines of the OP was a full-size coil flinging huge lightning bolts in a big room full of racks of mushrooms. Which would be awesome to behold, if a bit loud. That was an entertaining visual, and might've come off more like making fun of the idea, which was not the intent.

You’re thinking on the subject is in line with a fruitful avenue of research (pun sort-of intended) on using electricity to boost mushroom yields (especially for shittake, which can see yields double with such treatment), and then there's the interesting fact that various cultures around the world (including Ancient Greece) believed mushrooms grew where lightning struck. The O3 might (and probably would) reduce the contaminant load but would also likely have a corrosive/harmful effect on the top layer of mycelium (ozone isn't good for us to breathe, either).

 

But there's only one way to find out for sure if it would work, so your budget for the experimental Tesla coil-in-a-martha should therefore be approved. You can tell your budget Director I said so, and direct her to this link if necessary: https://www.national...-japan-harvest/

 

Good luck, and stay grounded...
