purple stems TOO MUCH nutrients?

Recommended Posts

Hello  i was told if your stalks/stems are a dark purple or darker color, then that means you are giving them too much nutrients?  Is this true?  Thanks!

Not necessarily. Many strains have that color stems normally.

However, if you know your strain really well it may be a sign of something if it happens and it's not normally what you see with that strain.

Like Resto said, some strains are like that. Could be phosphorus deficiency. Some need a little more PK to balance out the base. They all grow different.

Could be, or could be a deficiency, a pH problem or genetics. I find for me it is usually when my pH drifts too low. I grow in ocean Forrest with nothing added, and pH will drift acidic at times. My gorilla glue seems the most sensitive, many people think it's genetics of the glue, but it is not.

I haven't grown GG4 since Gangster Brand. I'd love to see what I could do with glue after 5yrs of additional experience.

Bet that up. I got a buddy down that way that was ranting about a blackberry kush cut. I'll have to make a day of it for sure.

Just hit me up on a private message a while before you come out this way. If you have anything interesting at that time, I am open to some new genetics too

      Hello.  Kind of a newbie.  been growing a bit now with led lights and im having some success.  Im using a 300 watt for veg and one 1000 watt and two 300 watt led for flower.  

      My buds dont get HUGE but they are decent and they are VERY dense.   Just wondering how i get bigger buds using only led lights?   Is there a nutrient or supplement i can add to give them bigger buds?  ALSO, I need to make my stalked stronger.  I only let them veg till the get about 12-24 inches then i flower them.  Buy the time they get to 3-4 weeks into flower, they start tipping over from the weight.  
       
      ANY help would be great.  Thanks!

      Been doing alot of research that says you should only start by giving your plants HALF of nutrients that the label suggests?  Is this true?   Thanks!
