TERPINATOR® is a plant nutrient formulated with potassium and naturally occurring compounds. TERPINATOR® is designed to increase the concentration of terpenoids in aromatic plant oils.
What are Terpenoids?
Terpenoids are responsible for the aromatics and flavors found in essential plant oils. TERPINATOR® maximizes a plant’s ability to produce terpenoids. TERPINATOR® accomplishes this by promoting the natural enlargement of the plant’s plant-oil producing resin glands while also increasing the number of gland sites.
TERPINATOR® can be used during the intire 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® won’t burn and can be used with any growing media, fertilizer, or nutrient program. TERPINATOR® has a neutral pH.
Two common odor molecules, or “terpenes,” are the lemon-scented limonene and the grapefruit-scented myrcene. Terpenes occur in a variety of oil-producing plants. Researchers have noted the power of scents to affect our mood. For example, people describe a feeling of “sunny happiness” when smelling the terpene limonene. When ingested, terpenes can have a biological effect on our bodies—such as when we feel relaxed after drinking the plant oils found in mint tea.
