Purple is fine it just means it got a chill that shifted their color, the yellow is probably from nitrogen deficiency (most likely )I’m also seeing some possible cal mag deficiency so possibly nute lockout and they’re droopy because their probably thirsty since they’re flowering so hard

I’m leaning towards a lock out of nitrogen and phosphorus… probably a PH lockout or salt build up. Depending on your nite regiment, I’m not positive let’s see what someone else says.
Edit: what green said haha

Ok so I’m seeing a nutrient overdose on your yellowing/purple plants, which, also have the droop. I’m assuming you are asking about the leaf droop because your watering and they aren’t going back up. I can’t tell 100% by the pic, but if your leaves are totally limp it’s underwatering, but if they are firm and just angled downward then that’s overwatering. Looks like maybe your plants were not draining well or drinking fast enough and they accumulated moisture and nutrients and the over-abundance locked them out which caused them to turn purple/yellow.

Your def on to something I’m just now seeing some tip burn now whether that is recent or not could decipher either way definitely locking out nitrogen and phosphorus… and now I’m leaning towards lockout caused by salt build up if salts are being used, if it was nute over dose the tip burn would steadily increase up the leafs wouldn’t it? So we would be seeing more dried crunchy nute burn than just deficiencies IMO my best guess as of now is if he is using say FF nutes he hasn’t flushed or missed a flush or didnt flush properly and has a mass of salt choking out the roots/ I guess we will know more when the support ticket gets filled out!

Autoflower says 8 weeks from seed to flower, they were seedlings on aug 3 so they should be done soon right? But they don’t look ready…

Yeah you might be on to something because they don’t have anywhere to drain out. I have the coco coir with a pearlite mix of about 50-50 and about a 2" layer of clay pebbles for better drainage.
