Terpinator - 1 Gallon
Terpinator acts as the precursor to plants' oil production. By employing naturally occurring plant and biological compounds, unique enzymatic pathways within a plant's body are utilized through Terpinator to enhance the production of Terpinoids and plant oils. Terpinator also catalyzes steps in a plant's normal metabolism that will protect and prolong fragrances of your plant's dried fruits and flowers.
Terpinator has a neutral pH of about 6 and should not affect your parts per millions (PPMs). It can be used during the entire life cycle of your plants - from the vegetating state all the way through flush. It can also be used in tandem with any other fertilizer or plant nutrition regimen. To use Terpinator, simply add 5-10 ml per gallon of water (during the vegetating phases of growth) or 10-30 ml per gallon of water (during the reproduction and fruit set stages of growth).
What are Terpinoids?
Some types of plant oils have Terpinoids, or compounds that contain interesting odor molecules. Terpinoids 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).
What are Some Common Terpinoids?
Two common 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. Terpinoids also have a long history of being antimicrobial, capable of destroying or inhibiting the growth of disease-causing microbes and preventing infections.
