Yeah i have some plant's i grew some month's ago. I grew them indoor's till late Veg. stage and moved them outdoor. The plants are in flowering and began to bud a couple weeks ago. The stems slowly turned red as of the past week in a half? Why does this happen for and is it something i should worry about?

What happens if the stems near buds, the stems leading to the leaves and the stems on the leafs have turned red?

could be a P deficiency, what is the ph of your soil and water? make sure its around 5.5-6.5, if thats right, then try using a fert with slightly higher P, ex. 10-15-10 (N-P-K) only use at 1/4 strength

In many strains, this is perfectly normal.
It is NOT indicative of any kind of deficiency or pH problem.

Me three. since it was pretty young. But it was in a rusted bucket cause I had to dig it up quickly. I was thinking it was the bucket leeching the soil. but who knows--

im pretty sure that when your leaf stems turn a reddish purple it means you have a nitrogen deficiency

Red/purple stems are also just a genetic phenotype.

Yeah listen to those guys, as long as the leaves don't start turning a very dark green-purple and drooping/curling in, then it is probably just the phenotype, I was just giving you the heads up that it COULD be a deficiency, because it happened to my plants and it was and once i got the right fert it was back to normal, so just keep an eye out

I've been growing for 4 years in a row in my backyard, in-ground, and every year the stems leading from the bud to the leaves have been a reddish/purplish colour, and every year it's ended up growing just fine and some really good dope. I think you have nothing to worry about my friend!

hi,

i noticed that all the stems of plants that are most near to my florescent lamp turn red. is that bad?

apart from it they grow faster then the other plants and the leaves grow bigger.

I think it is the plant producing anthocytans sp?? and is a signal for stress, could be fungal, disease, insects etc . . .

I think this was a three year old post, maybe try your own topic if it hasn't been discussed already
