You can try adding over drive by Advance nutrients are any flower booster for week 4 on most nutrient charts that might give you that last plump to fatten your buds up .

The purple could be strain related or low temps. I don’t believe it’s a bad thing.

Strain is gold leaf nutes or water ph to 6.4-6.7 …soil ph 6.5-6.8 feeding with molasses 2 tbsp per gal have had some cold nights down to the 50F this past week

My gold leaf had purple in the stems as well. The yellowing of the leaves is normal as the plant nears its end. If you haven’t already start watching your trichomes. I’m a beginner too so be patient and more experts will chime in but I think you’re in good shape.

I think the purplish stems is a characteristic in the strain if your fan leaves are not showing typical defiency issues than its just genetics . But using molasses helps balance your calcium and iron levels in your medium , it does not and I repeat does not sweeten your buds , the molecules are to large for the plant roots to use molasses as beneficial microbial nutrients for the plant . But molasses does help balance calcium and iron in a soil and coco coir grow ! But you only need 1 ml which is one teaspoon per gallon . I’m no expert but I have done two full grows with an auto flower and photo period indica and sativa with molasses instead of Calmag and had good results but 1 teaspoon per gallon every watering and feeding at my different ph levels depending on what week my plant was I at the time.
