Welcome to Cultivate Colorado

Terpinator is here!!


Terpinator is the one and only 100% organic product of its kind, formulated to increase the concentration of Terpinoids in aromatic plant oils and glands.

How Does It Work?
The unique composition of the Terpinator provides the basic building blocks that plants require to produce flavorful oils. Plants that produce these flavorful oils have a unique chemistry that we have captured through a patented scientific process. By using naturally occurring plant and biological compounds, unique enzymatic pathways within a plant’s body are utilized to enhance the production of Terpinoids and plant oils. Herbs like sage, mint, rosemary and many others have trichomes that contain Terpinoids. These glands are brought to their maximum potential and size using Terpinator along with any nutrient regiment. Terpinator also catalyzes steps in a plants normal metabolism that will protect, and prolong fragrances of your plant’s dried fruits and flowers.

Cold Crops & Heat Waves

Tips on Cold Crops in Heat Waves

Our average first frost date in the Front Range in Colorado is September 19. Cold crops such as radishes, chard, carrots, kale, spinach, leaf and head lettuces can be sown outdoors directly starting in mid-August along with transplant starts of broccoli, cauliflower and head lettuce.

Continue to water potted plants daily during heat waves. Fertilize once a week with a water-soluble all-purpose fertilizer. A good way to do this is to have a hollow tube (like a PVC pipe) with at least a one inch diameter. Drill holes in the side every one to two inches and place the tube vertically in the pot. When you fertilize, pour the water-fertilizer mixture into the tube, which will allow it to reach plant roots.

The Importance of Ventilation in Hydroponics

Fresh air is at the centre of successful indoor gardening. Outside, air is abundant and almost always fresh. C02 levels in the air over a field of rapidly growing vegetation will vary on how still the air is. Being outdoors, and subject to the warming and cooling of the day, the wind blows in fresh air. Rain will cleanse the air of dust and pollutants. The outdoor environment is always moving. Plants grown indoors do not have the natural balance that is present out of doors and must be achieved indoors by way of fresh air ventilation or CO2 enrichment.

So you have decided to add CO2 to your hydroponic systems. Great! Welcome to the wonderful world of bigger yields. Now having said that, there is a caveat – like all good things – there can be some events to watch out for. For our purposes we will be dealing with the increases of humidity in a CO2 enriched environment.

Make Your Own Living Succulent Art

1. Plant a living picture: Instead of framing a picture, why not a whole garden? Here, cuttings of assorted succulents knit together to create colorful, textural living tapestries.

2. Gather cuttings: Break the small “pups” from succulents you already have growing in your garden (the stems should be at least 1/4 inch long).

3. Set the cuttings aside in a cool area for a few days to allow their stem ends to dry and callus over. (You’ll want about 60 for a 6- by 12-inch frame.)

4. Add soil: Set the frame mesh side up on a flat surface; fill it with moist cactus mix, working the mix through the mesh with your fingers. The mesh and a wood backing holds the soil in place.
