Red stems on fan leaves


Are these red stem anything to be worried about? They have always been a little red but seem to be getting more prominent. Just added a new light, maybe just seeing it better. Any thoughts or advice are greatly appreciated. Seeds are mystery seeds, in 5 gal pots, ffof soil. 70 days from seed. Using tiger bloom once a week. Ph 6.7 haven’t watered to runoff in awhile. Should I flush and check runoff.

A good watering to runoff to get a read on your ph and ppm is a good idea.
Bout 2 gal should give you enough to get a read.
Then determine wether to continue with more water. :v:
Night time temps can also play a role in purpling in a plant too.

I always have red stems and my plants are healthy. So from my experience, not a concern.

Watered to runoff with ph 6.5 water, runoff ph was 6.1 ppm was 880. Night time temps are pretty much the same as daytime temp. Ranges 70-78 degrees with an rh of 40-50%.

Could also be genetics too. Some strains are predisposed to this.
I don’t think I’d worry too much. :wink::+1::v:

Thanks for the advice guys. Being my second grow, was just unsure. Keeping an eye on them, and trying to catch any issues early. Already fought of gnats this grow, and early diagnosis and action made it a non-issue.

I have purple stems also. I think it has more to do with indoor growing. No concerns here.
