Phosphorous deficiency maybe?


it could that is a sign but he would see damage to the leaf its self too not just red stems

are the leafs in good shape? also forgot to post some strains just have red stems in there genes. are we talking about the man stem or the little ones that branch off to the leafs and as always a pic would help

You're not telling us of any leaf damage/problems, so I assume all you are noticing is the red stems -- in which case I would say it's genetics and normal. Purple could just be genetic as well, not necessarily caused by cold.

:smoke: dont worry mate, it is because of the cold, just try to keep the temps up a bit more, you could try a small oil heater. good luck mate.

I noticed red stems on mine as well. I have three plants growing and the red stems are on the two closest to the fresh air fan. I'll have to adjust my fan placement, thank you for the information - good thread.

I did not have any leaf damage.
