Terpinator has evolved into Purpinator

by Screwstick about October 17 - report

Looks like Terpinator has a new and improved version. I guess they figured it was easier to give it a new name instead of calling it Terpinator 2

    Neither Terpinator or Purpinator will be in my hydro res though. 

    For deep water culture systems: change reservoir once every 3-5 days

      If you can’t keep it in your reservoir for more than a few days. What about soil? Do you flush the plant every few days also?
      What is the exact reason for the short time?

      My guess is there is oil in it that doesnt mix with water. I will ask.
      With coco I feed every day to run off so it is technically a flush. Harley doesn't feed to run off so maybe he can chime in.
      I just happened to see the warning and it surprised me a bit

      Yeah that's a lot of money and work man! I'm sticking with my regular schedule, swap every 14 days and top off when needed but I will indeed try it in coco.

      Even if it is ok in RDWC and it seems like it actually is a liter every 2 weeks going to be expensive. A gallon a grow if you use it only in flower @ $53 a gallon or more. I need to think about that a bit more

      How much did you use? Did you notice any film?

      I was using 20ml/gallon. I didn’t notice any film and I have a lot of moving nutrients. I run 2 air stones per reservoir/ buckets.
      So the reservoir looks like it is rolling!

    This is from the customer support at Terpinator. They responded within 20 minutes so thats good

    Thanks for reaching out with your question - we recommend maintaining a critically clean reservoir by supplementing with a sterilization agent when using our products. The reason we recommend changing every 3-5 days is that constant agitation and aeration are needed to prevent any potential issues when using the products. Doing so helps prevent any potential buildup or accumulation of residue that may be caused by airborne or waterborn bacteria that can occur from having a reservoir that is sitting and exposed for long periods of time, especially in a recirculating setup. While the bacteria and the residues are generally harmless, they can be an inconvenience to the grower. 

     

    So long as you are utilizing a critical cleaning agent such as UC Roots or the like, you should not have any issues. 

     

    Best Regards

      I would think that too, my guess is they are referring to the reservoir that feeds the control bucket, other than that it should all be moving. I will ask

      Do you use continuous circulation in RDWC?

      Thier concern is the reservoir with water that is not moving that feeds the system. I get that

      You also have a lot of air movement in your buckets.

      Yes, 2 in each is a good plan.

    I am not going to change the way i use it at all. The most i give my plants in flower is 1tsp per gallon. I have tried giving more but had no noticable better results at all over using just 1tsp per gallon. I was just wasting Terpinator and money. I also do not flush when i use Terpinator until the last week when i flush before harvest.  Peace

      The warning is about DWC or RDWC, I dont think its a problem for coco.

  • 1.823

    Screwstick 1.823 points - October 17

    So it looks like there comment about DWC is poorly phrased and they are only concerned with water that is not moving at all like what could be in the feed res of an RDWC but IMO that should have air stones as well.  Seems like it would be the same as a DWC to me

    So if I was going to use either the Terp or the Purp I would only put it in the mix for the control bucket and grow sites and leave it out of the feed res for topping off or I guess you could stir that once a day. For the cost of it I wouldnt put it in feed res anyway, that may get drained and never used. 

    For me if I use it only in flower and at half strength that will add over $50 to each grow of 6 plants. Worth it or not is TBD and probably not for the P&M Auto Challenge.  Sorry guys

    So the sky is not falling but I am getting pelted with acorns every time I go outside this time of year.

    Back to the origonal subject I asked them if Purpinator is the next generation of Terpinator and this is their reply

    Its our newest product - it has the same benefits of Terpinator but has the added benefit of improving purple color expression in strains with purple phenotypes.
