Are these stems showing signs of magnesium deficiency?

Is this magnesium deficiency?

I have started watering with a little bit of Epson salt about a week ago. Their mother plant also had this purple coloring on the stems.

Thank you.

You’ll need to read the leaves. Stems can indicate issues but could also just be a genetic thing.


Thanks. I think it might be partly genetic. The mother’s leaf’s veins eventually looked purple also. The leaves themselves looked okay otherwise.

Red stem is also a co-symptom of phosphorus deficiency. I wait until the leaves start telling me that before I chase a deficiency I might not have, lol.
