Terpenez is formulated from all natural botanical extracts and is designed to assist the plant with processes associated with oil and resin production. The use of Terpenez is designed to increase the concentration of terpenes in plant oils and resin glands.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are a diverse class of organic compounds found in a variety of plants including cannabis. Terpenes have an incredibly strong odor and is what gives cannabis its aromatic diversity. The concentration of terpenes, THC & CBD is what produces what is known as the entourage effect. Every strain has a different terpenoid profile which makes it unique.
How to use Terpenez?
Directions for use (be sure to shake thoroughly before mixing and applying):
- Continuous Model: 10 – 15 ml per gallon throughout the flowering/fruiting cycle. Ideal pH Range: 5.8 – 6.4
- Flush Model: 15 – 25 ml per gallon during flush. Ideal pH Range: 5.6 – 6.2
- DWC Applications: Use 1/3 to 1/2 of recommended strength for DWC systems
- Pro Tip: To boost the overall effectiveness of Terpenez try feeding your favorite beneficial bacteria inoculants 2 days prior to your first application of Terpenez and again 10 days later.
Why should i inoculate before using Terpenez?
Inoculation helps increase the microbial richness in your grow medium and it also helps produce natural plant hormones such as cytokinin. These benefits paired with Terpenez allows your plants to maximize terpene and resin production.
Where is Terpenez made?
Terpenez is blended in-house in Carson, California.
What exactly does the PerfectpH do?
The PerfectpH will maintain your water pH in the range of 5.7 – 6.5 by removing excess positively charged hydrogen ions (H+). When H+ ions build up in the system it inhibits nutrients from being bio-available to the plants roots for uptake. It is important to note that different nutrients are used by the plants at different pH levels, so a 100% fixed pH is not always ideal. Rather than a fixed number, the PerfectpH allows the pH to move slightly within a limited range, as different nutrients are being absorbed at their ideal pH level. Proper water circulation is an important factor when using the PerfectpH.
The pH of my system is a bit higher than the ideal range, what can I do?
There are a few factors that can make the PerfectpH less effective including high reservoir temperatures and certain additives. If the temperature is too high, it could interfere with the PerfectpH working at its full potential. Make sure to maintain the temperature at the ideal range of 65-72F. If the temperature is within the ideal range and you are still experiencing high pH, it could be caused by untreated rockwool or clay media. Although many consider clay or hydroton media to be relatively inert, it can cause pH rise due to its basic or alkaline nature, which will buffer the system upwards. This effect can be magnified with clay or hydroton that has been sitting for long periods of time. The solution to counteract this upward buffering is the following pre-treatment solution:
Leave the hydroton/clay in a solution of 1 part vinegar, 2 parts water for over 48 hours. Rinse with water thoroughly to remove any remaining vinegar and return the media to the system.
The use of un-stabilized silica can cause the PerfectpH to work less effectively or cause the pH to increase. It is recommended to use a pre-stabilized silica when using the PerfectpH. Oxidizing agents such as Hydrogen Peroxide are not recommended for use with the PerfectpH. Non-chelated organic nutrients may be less effective with PerfectpH.
How often to I need to change my reservoir using PerfectpH?
Reservoir changes are recommended every 4-6 weeks, or when the pH rises outside of the optimal range.
How do I maintain the PerfectpH?
It is recommended to recharge the PerfectpH with the PerfectpH Recharge Kit every 8 weeks or every flower cycle for best results, or when the pH falls outside the optimal range. If you use a 100 gallon PerfectpH in a 100 gallon reservoir, you can expect to recharge the unit every 2 months or 8 weeks. However, if you use a 100 gallon PerfectpH in a 50 gallon reservoir you can expect it to last twice as long, or recharge at 16 weeks or 4 months.
