Hope this works


Here are a couple plants I’m growing, does anyone know why the stems are purple on one plant. Is that normal or do i have a serious problem. Any advice is appropriated.


You should fill out a support ticket with all important info first so the community can help you better
maybe @Majiktoker or @MacGyverStoner
Can help better with this
But it can be a sign of a problem starting or normal to the strain so hard to tell with info provided


To me, they look okay. Not seeing a problem. Purple doesn’t always mean a problem as @Countryboyjvd1971 said. What is the strain? My WW had some purple looking stems but they’re growing great.

Red/purple stems are caused from a cal mag and phosphorus deficiency, or also strain genetics however likely seeing your photos you have a cal mag and phosphorus deficiency.

Your ph for soil is also a smidge to high your ph for soil should be 6.3-6.9, ph sweet spot for soil would be 6.5-6.6

Happy growings good luck


I’ve added cal mag to the nutes. And seem to work on my other plant I’ll work on my ph next thanks



It’s most likely genetics the purple stems .
But your P H is to high. Should be 5.8 your P H is off at 7.2



Ok I’ll work on my ph. Thanks.


Your plants do look really good.so by fixing your P H now will sav your plants from having issue’s later on.



That’s the only one with the purple stems. Out of all my plants. Thanks for advice.


@garrigan62, do not misguide this grower, he is growing in soil, his issue is a cal mag issue in an above post he has gave to his plants and it has started to work, and his ph should be at 6.5-6.6 for the fact has growing in soil, had he been growing in hydro id agree your ph should be 5.8


@garrigan62 so my ph should be 6 to 6.6. in soil. do u grow in soil and 6.5 range worked for you. just don,t want to have to start all over


In his support ticket h clearly states and I quote " PH of runoff or solution in reservoir? 7.2 "
So he was given the correct info.


Yes I do and that is correct.




is where I like my ph to be to 6.75 tops . As a new grower who loves to read and learn about new things it seems that at least 80 % of all the issues that people have can be traced back to a ph imbalance and a lockout of a nutrient that is critical to that particular stage of the plants life . This really helped me understand the why of ph being so important good luck
