Red stems on old branches.. But plant look healthy overall. I have started with appr. 1/6 th of nutrients and then been ramping up.

What is your experience with red stems and reason/solution to this?

Red stems can be strain related, If they have the "purple" genetic the branches and stems get purple/ red. i got to look in your case if its genetic. I will answer in the Comments then. The other possability is a Phosphorus defiency. IN the Flower the Plant needs alot of Phosphorus and K( Potassium) - You can give her a good shot of any Blooming booster in that case. I let you a link to a helping site where you can read that. Its hard to say with only a few informations about your plant but with the site you will find it our and solve the Problem. Happy growing...

Hello @DaBuzz! Purple petioles could be for 2 reasons. First its ganetic and plants that don't have the "purple" gene cpould also develop purple petiols. Second a starting phosphorus deficiency. Because its developing at the lower old leafs i would bet its a deficiency but you don't have to worry about as long as the plant grows. Happy growing! :facepunch:
