WHAT IS PURPINATOR?
Purpinator is a liquid nutrient additive for flowering/fruiting plants. Purpinator has a 0-2-4 NPK Ratio.
WHAT DOES PURPINATOR DO TO MY PLANTS?
Purpinator provides the building blocks for improved production of flavonoids such as anthocyanins, which influence pigmentation of plants. When combined with blue light in the 400-500nm range, Purpinator will drastically increase the production of pigment inducing compounds while maintaining a neutral pH in cell sap to promote purple pigmentation. While many plants can have an increased production of purple coloration when temperatures drop below a certain point, this can create issues in enclosed growing environments. Purpinator allows users to get the benefits of purple pigment production without having to alter their environment. In addition to coloration, Purpinator will provide the building blocks for terpene production and trichome production in plants, improving your plant’s ability to produce secondary compounds unique to your genetic cultivar.
WHAT ARE FLAVONOIDS?
Flavonoids are a group of water soluble metabolites found in plants. Some of these influence pigmentation, such as cyanidin. Cyanidin has a varying colour expression based on the pH of its container vacuole, expressing red in low pH conditions, purple in neutral pH conditions, and blue in high pH conditions.
WHAT DOES INCREASED ANTHOCYANIN PRODUCTION FROM PURPINATOR MEAN FOR MY PLANTS?
Improved production of anthocyanins in plants fed with Purpinator will result in an increase in intensity of purple coloration in plant material when combined with light in the 400-500nm range.
HOW DO I MAKE MY PLANTS PURPLE
Not all plants are capable of producing a significant amount of anthocyanins or cyanidin to display purple coloration. Purpinator is a simple, effective means of promoting and improving purple pigmentation in plants with the genetic capability to produce anthocyanin and cyanidin compounds when combined with light in the 400-500nm range.
WHY PURPINATOR OVER OTHER PRODUCTS?
Purpinator is a unique product that provides multiple benefits, especially for those dealing with plants that express purple pigmentation. While it’s primary function is to promote the expression and production of purple pigmentation and anthocyanin compounds, it also provides the building blocks for the production of terpene and trichome production unique to the genetic cultivar that is being grown. Purpinator contains no PGR’s and no heavy metals, making it a safe additive for those who are producing at scale.
CAN I USE PURPINATOR FOR HYDROPONICS? SOIL? COCO?
Purpinator is safe for use in all grow applications with the same feed rate.
HOW MUCH PURPINATOR SHOULD I USE?
Purpinator can be added during the Vegetative phase at 2-5mL/Gallon, 6-15mL/Gallon during the Flowering phase, and 20-30mL/Gallon during the final two weeks of flowering. See the Purpinator Feed Chart.
WHEN SHOULD I START USING PURPINATOR?
We recommend starting Purpinator in the Vegetative phase to provide a stockpile of available compounds for use in flowering. If you are using Purpinator for flowering only, start adding Purpinator at the first signs of flower site development or when you change your light cycle. See the full feed chart.
HOW OFTEN/MUCH SHOULD I BE USING PURPINATOR?
Purpinator is a gentle formula that will not burn your plants when applied as directed. Purpinator is recommended to be used at each feeding, but can be fed as frequently as you water your plants.
CAN I USE PURPINATOR DURING THE FLUSH?
Purpinator can be used all the way through your flush and will not leave chemical residuals or affect the finished product in a negative way.
CAN I USE PURPINATOR WITH MY NUTRIENT LINE?
Purpinator is at the correct pH for hydroponic and soil use, and is an 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.
CAN I FOLIAR SPRAY PURPINATOR?
No, Purpinator was designed to be fed as a root drench with water and is not to be sprayed onto the leaves of the plant.
IS PURPINATOR SAFE FOR USE IN DEEP WATER CULTURE SYSTEMS?
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 critical cleaning solution and to closely monitor for film development along the surface. Critically clean reservoir systems are recommended.
IS PURPINATOR SAFE TO USE ON ANY PLANT?
Purpinator is safe for use on all plants, but will perform best on plants that express purple pigmentation.
