LazLow started grow question 4 years ago
For a couple weeks there has been some redness in the stalk which I’ve thought nothing of. However, today the edges of some smaller sugar leaves have started to turn purple. Temperature is staying as noted above, should I be concerned?

Hey there so the red stems can be many things. Genetics, purple strains, berry strains, common. Phosphorus deficiency and magnesium too, but you have a good nutrient line up so unless you'rehaving lockout or ph problems I'd say not nutrient related. The 1st thing i saw was your lower humidity which can also play a role just as much as high/low heat can. Your plant seems overall healthy though, so i wouldn't stress too much...but of coarse finding out the source of our problems is always good. My guess is either the genetics or slightly humidity temp based...i think anything under 70 degrees will start initiating color changes. Happy harvesting :v:

hey Lazlow, yeah you should be concerned, unfortunately. the metabolism of your plants is pretty heavy due to everything being pretty much tuned in, so the plant is making flowers in overdrive mode, and using more Phosphorous (P) than is available, so what you're seeing is P deficiency. to correct this, you can either use a PK booster or increase your bloom nutrients instead of grow nutrients. you want to start feeding this asap. sorry for the bad news, but it's the truth. hope this helps ! :rocket:
