Rhizoflora Terpinator® is the original terpene enhancing fertilizer additive designed to improve terpene concentration in your plants. 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.
Terpenes are natural molecules found commonly in plant oils. Terpenes are responsible for the smells of your favourite herbs and flowers, and each terpene has a unique effect and aroma. 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 flavour and aroma true to the genetic nature of the plant.
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.
