Not entirly true, it can also be because of stress. If you have ever had a plant that you abused or just ignored you would notice that they go fully purple down the stalk......that does not mean it is a purple strain....it means its stressed. pics would be good!

as for the subject of the thread, stems and leaves can turn purple or have a purple hue on leaves when they are grown in colder climates or are subjected to cloder temperatures

i know in other garden herbs purple stems are a sign of potassium deficiency, i assume this could also apply marijuana

I grow many many strains, non purple and i have noticed EVERY Good Strong Strain such as Bob Marley, PPP (Pure Power Plant, not Purple Power Plant), White Pearl, Skunk, ect ect ect.

All have purple stems, and no its not from stress at all, as the plant ages it will turn purple... just about every strain thats high quality and strong growing.

PS im only talking the stem from the fanleaves not the main stem or branches.

are you guys talking about the whole stem, (from tunk to leaf) being red or the actual trunk..... one of my plants the larger leaves have a red stripe sunning down the center of the stem ro the leafe where and all the "fingers" meet,

but only on mature leaves.... i think mine is a case of strain.. has anyone noticed this being related to potency?.. just an idea

What is the difference between the stem and the trunk??

Like a lot of newbie posts this one is totally confused in its nomenclature.

I was once in a planting class in HS and all our tomatos we were going to sell turned purple (chronikkk!!! hehe). Teacher said because the soil was too acidic, so we transplanted them into better soil and they turned green again.

Might want to check the acidity of your soil.

Thank you 3to1k... no one said RED so i dont knw where that shit came in... Your plant is fine, its normal for potent strains to have Purple "LEAF STEMS" and these strains usually have also Purple lines running down the main "Trunk" of the plant.

Nothing to worry about, yu have a good strain.
