I need to learn how to make the colors pop

Not a technique or system but my natural temps give me a 20f plus swing daily. Have never seen it hit 50’s but closing tent at 84f and opening it at 62f is a normal day. A plant that doesn’t take on any color is more of an amazement to me at this point. I’d focus on swing rather than low temp.

Honestly looks like a lighting trick

One of the mods on here was saying in a different thread that raising the ph to around 10 would also chnge the color. If i find the thread I’ll come back inna while.

Just ph your water super high during the last 2 weeks and you wont have to try to achieve stupidly cold temperatures in your tent or room.

The cold weather just slows down nutrient uptake which causes lockouts and deficiencies…which is the purples and reds you see in flower.

The reason I go high instead of low is because cannabis plants like more acidic mediums more then they do in alkaline environments. So as long as your up above a ph of 10 then you’ll get the colors like you would if you stuck the plant in 50°F nights.

That is most definitely playing with lighting. That Blue Haze is probably just a normal green plan in reality

I have been trying to figure out how to bring out the nice colors as well.

I have a grow going with two purple colored plants with 15+ degree swings every day/night. Week 6 of flower and nothing yet.

I also read that pH brings out colors. High pH for blues, low pH for reds, and purples are suppose to be more neutral pH. Haven’t tried it yet.

Recently read about a product call Purpinator to enhance terpenoids. Terpenoids are responsible for smell and taste and are found in every growing plant. The smell of roses or pine trees or lemons are determined by the terpenoids within the plant.

The company previously came out with a product called Terpinator that enhanced the terpenoids in an attempt to enhance aroma and taste of any phenotype. They now have a new product called Purpinator that does all that but enhances purple colors in a compatible phenotype. Doesn’t help with blue or red colors. Just got it in today, hope in a couple months to have three beautifully purple LA Confidentials. I’ll let you know.

Yeah, not gonna happen, that’s playing with colors in photoshop or something. True blue is a very rare color on buds.

My Blue Dream - not blue at all

I think my Cherry Ice Cream has more blue in it than most “Blue” strains

This amherst diesel started adding purple a week or so ago and has another week or two left. This is a couple days ago, it’s added more color since.
Night temps don’t drop below 67 and day tops out at 75 so not too cold.

Those all look superb. I do have more of a problem judging when a plant is done the more purple it is. Beautiful buds. Very nice. Don’t have the eye for that yet. Wonderful pictures. Learning. Nice. Very nice. All of them.
Anyone have a picture of a purple bud ready for harvest? Like a close up of the trikes? I like that. Bud porn.

I bred a Blue Cheese with a Cindy Haze. Came out beautiful. Named her Spoiled Rotten Princess :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
