Started to see some purpling in the stems so I upped the magnesium with epsom salt (magnesium sulfate). I would really like to use Microbeneficials magnesium product but I still have a bunch of epsom salt so once I run out I will finally order their product. I also did a foliar spray with Lazarus and Uriah on day 17 and 19.

Day 25 and im impressed!! This one in the 3 gallon is taller, but I think the 7 gallon has a stronger foundation. TIMe will tell but very happy with the way they look.

Did the stem purpling end and reverse? I am not among those, and they are many and highly opinionated, who believe purpling is always a bad thing. And if purple flowers are so desirable, why are stems considered mag deficient if that is the only symptom? I’ve seen it regardless of nutrients, and never noticed anything negative as a result. What’s your take now that you’ve addressed it?

@growdoctordc, mag def probably isn’t too big of a deal if it doesn’t get out of control, and I’ve heard of some strains having a purple color to them but this is still veg, not flower. I think I reversed most the purpling. What do you think? . This PASTE I’m using requires magnesium bc it has very little. I’m going to be purchasing Microbeneficials magnesium soon but I have a bunch of Epsom Salt to use up First.

@diamondtrichomes,
They look green, but then I couldn’t see purpling in pics from previous weeks. Congratulations on fixing it.
And of course use up what you have on hand. The micros mag sounds great! I’ve often wondered why epsom is so frequently recommended when it has in its name the enemy of plant nutrition- SALT

@growdoctordc, yeah I’ve used synthetic salts for my first few years and after learning more I’m slowly getting away from them. Almost all nutrients out there are synthetics, and usually the schedule they have on their bottle is way too much.
