Terpinator Is The One & Only Product Of Its Kind, Formulated To Increase The Concentration Of Terpinoids In Aromatic Plant Oils & Glands
What is Terpinator?
Terpinator is the result of years of trials by a dedicated team of professional cultivators who wanted just a bit more from their harvests. More taste, more aroma, and a higher potency no matter the plant. They knew that the key to getting the results they were looking for was in the terpenes the building blocks of the essential oils found in most plants and flowers.
Why Use Terpinator?
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.
Potassium (K) & Terpinator
Overall K+ is one of the most critical macro minerals for a plant to grow properly. Potassium is needed by the plant in every aspect of its life cycle, from seed germination to vegetative phases and fruit set. Unlike Nitrogen and Phosphorus, Potassium does not become part of any plant component. Since K+ is stored in the plants cellular cytoplasm and sap, it must be provided to a plant all the time. Potassium is responsible for the cellular regulation of over 60 different enzymes in meristematic tissues. In summary K+ is responsible for regulating enzyme activity, regulating CO2 and water through osmoregulation of the plant’ stomata, and is essential for the production of ATP. By insuring plants have the correct forms and amount of Potassium available, proper growth from seed to fruit set is insured.
Potassium also plays a strong roles in protein synthesis. Again, the formation and activation of critical enzymes (e.g., nitrate reductase) is limited by the presence of K in the cells of the plant. Protein syntheses is necessary for the production of soluble nitrogen compounds, such as amino acids, nitrate, etc. In the absence of proteins, plants cannot grow and set fruits, or form roots properly.

How Terpinator Works
A One-Of-A-Kind Four-Step Process
After application, Terpinator travels to plant cells in direct contact with the epidermal layer of the plant.
Terpinator is then stored in plant cells, and pushed into storage with the help of bioosmotic potentiators until ready for use.
Terpinator enhances plants ability to produce gland sites by being readily available as a building block for secondary metabolites.
By providing the necessary building blocks for secondary metabolites, trichome counts and productivity rapidly increases.
How To Use Terpinator
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.

Rhizoflora Terpinator Questions & Answers
Q: What is Terpinator?
A: Terpinator is a liquid nutrient additive for flowering/fruiting plants. Terpinator has a 0-0-4 NPK Ratio. Learn more about Terpinator.
Q: What does Terpinator do?
A: Terpinator provides the building blocks for improved terpene production and trichome production in plants, improving your plant?s ability to produce secondary compounds unique to your genetic cultivar.
Q: What are Terpenes?
A: Terpenes are natural molecules found commonly in plant oils. Terpenes are responsible for the smells of your favorite herbs and flowers, and each terpene has a unique effect and aroma.
Q: What does increased terpene production from Terpinator mean for my plants?
A: The terpene profile is determined by the number and concentration of Terpenes in a plant when analyzed. While some plants can absorb terpenes or esters and incorporate them into plant tissue, these may not be naturally produced by the plants. When naturally improving terpenes, one can expect more numerous, larger glandular trichome sites. The larger the capacity to carry secondary metabolites, the more the plant can produce in the presence of the necessary building blocks for terpenes. This leads to an improvement in flavor and aroma true to the genetic nature of the plant.
Q: How do I raise my terpene concentration?
A: Terpenes and their production are genetically determined by the plant. Plants can uptake other terpenes or terpenoids if they are artificially inputted by the cultivator into the plant’s system, typically with the help of additives containing terpenes from a variety of sources. While this can target certain terpenes which are desirable, it is not true to your genetic cultivar. As terpene profiles become more important in determining genetics and effects of a strain, artificially inflating a mismatched terpene could lead to an undesirable effect that is unbalanced and not true to the cultivar. Terpinator can improve your plant?s natural ability to produce terpenes by providing the building blocks for increased natural production, resulting in an increased terpene profile true to your cultivar.
Q: Why Terpinator over other products?
A: Many other terpene enhancing or flavor enhancing products simply disguise the true nature of the plant with bio-available compounds which are absorbed into the cell structure of the plant and alter the flavor and aroma. While this does change the overall profile, it is not the true profile of the plant. Plants naturally produce terpenes, and by adding products into your regimen that enhance and facilitate this process naturally such as Terpinator, you can have the terpenoid profile unique to the cultivar you are growing reach its maximum potential.
Q: Can I use Terpinator for Hydroponics? Soil? Coco?
A: Terpinator is safe for use in all grow applications with the same feed rate.
Q: How much Terpinator should I use?
A: Terpinator can be added during the Vegetative phase at 5mL/Gallon, and 10-30mL/Gallon during the Flowering phase. See the Terpinator Feed Chart.
Q: When should I start using Terpinator?
A: We recommend starting Terpinator in the Vegetative phase to provide a stockpile of available compounds for use in flowering. If you are using Terpinator for flowering only, start adding Terpinator at the first signs of flower site development or when you change your light cycle. See the full feedchart.
Q: How often/how much should I be using Terpinator?
A: Terpinator is a gentle formula that will not burn your plants when applied as directed. Terpinator is recommended to be used at each feeding, but can be fed as frequently as you water your plants.
Q: Can I use Terpinator during the flush?
A: Terpinator can be used all the way through your flush and will not leave chemical residuals or affect the finished product in a negative way.
Q: Can I use Terpinator with my Nutrient Line?
A: Terpinator is a neutral pH, low PPM additive that can be incorporated to any nutrient regiment with no change to your pre-existing schedule. Be sure to monitor PPM and pH to ensure they are within the desired range after adding any new nutrient to a feed.
Q: Can I foliar spray Terpinator?
A: No, Terpinator was designed to be fed as a root drench with water and is not to be sprayed onto the leaves of the plant.
Q: Is Terpinator safe for use in Deep Water Culture systems?
A: If you are using a hydroponic reservoir system, it?s best to clean the reservoir as frequently as once every three to five days with a sterile cleaning solution and to closely monitor for film development along the surface. Sterile reservoir systems are recommended. For specific inquiries, contact email@example.com and we can help provide more detailed instruction.
Q: Is Terpinator safe to use on any plant?
