Wife thinks it’s been too cold in the grow and possibly too wet. What say the Brain Trust here?

I’d go with too wet.
See how your leaves look kinda plump and puffy along the veins.
They’re a bit droopy too.

Give me a sec and I’ll find a support ticket for you.

I’m growing a strain called red poison…. The stalk and branches are blood red, under the leaves are blood red, the buds are reddish purple. It’s wild to look at. If you are fighting fungus gnats and had root rot last attempt…could be you have an overwatering issue.

@Docnraq, I should have been more clear. My last indoor grow last winter I had issues with fungus gnats.
My root rot was this year’s outdoor grow. We had so much rain, my soil got silted in and root rot killed 9 of my girls. BAD.

The red/ purple is only on the new growth and seems less pronounced now. I pulled the plants out of their pots for 24 hours to dry out the root mass then put them back in their pots the next day. I will shoot some more pics when the lights come on this afternoon for you folks to see more. I will also shoot an overview of the whole canopy.

@rp1 I see you don’t have them listed but
Ph and Tds meters. Very necessary if using salt based nutes.
Apera and Blue lab are 2 of the most popular ones folks use.
I’ve seen where the cheaper meters won’t hold the calibration very long. Need to be calibrated on a regular basis.
You can get away with a less expensive tds meter but I wouldn’t cheap out on the ph meter.
Btw. I use blue lab meters for the last 3 years and 0 issues.

My son and I were checking them out this morning and he also noticed purple veins running up the stems. I will post a few pics when the lights come on.
Thanks for the reply @Oldguy.

Which soil ? Pic of the bag would help.
And from your last pic they still appear too wet.
Are the pots light when you water ?

And the ph tester is a definite need item.

In the 1 gal my lil ones that age take about 3-4 days to dry out enough to water again.
And I water to runoff each time.
