Terpinator is the original terpene and resin enhancer. Formulated to help provide the building blocks for secondary metabolites, Terpinator feeds to encourage increased production of terpenes to help heighten aroma and flavor. Terpinator can be used in conjunction with General Hydroponics nutrients or any feed regimen and is compatible with soil, hydroponics, and soilless media.
Terpinator was created from years of researching naturally occurring plant compounds that are bio-osmotic potentiators. Terpinator can be use along with any nutrient program.
How does it work?
Some types of plant oils have terpenoid, or compounds that contain very interesting odor molecules. Terpenoids are molecular compounds that consist of repeating units of a 5-carbon structure called isoprene. Many plants incorporate aromatic compounds that produce a plethora of odors that have been long thought to affect our physiology through odor activation (aromatherapy).
Two of these odor molecules are limonene and myrcene. These occur in a wide variety of oil producing plants, and can be described to smell like lemons and grapefruit, respectively. Many researchers have been aware of the power of odor chemistry to affect our moods, for example, many people describe a feeling of “sunny happiness” when smelling limonene. These types of compounds end up in the glands that inhabit the “skin” of plants, and can create biological affects in our bodies when ingested. For example, the plant oils in mint can cause a feeling of relaxation when taken as a cup of tea.
Terpinator has a neutral PH of about 6 and should not affect your parts per millions (PPMs). This product can be used from vegetating state all the way through flush. We recommend 15 - 30 ml/Gal for the last 4-6 weeks of flowers, and all the way through flush. Terpinator has been tested at a very high concentrations with a large variety of nutrients and mediums - never with any results of burning or negative effects. Therefore, it can be used through the entire cycle of growth without concern.
You can use Terpinator during the entire life cycle of the plant.
Vegetating phases of growth: Add 5-10 ml per gallon of water.
Reproduction and fruit set stages of growth: Add 10-30 ml per gallon of water.
Terpinator can be use along with any nutrient program or any brand of fertilizer products.
