Purple centers of leaves and stems

Discussion in 'Sick Plants and Problems' started by Jamesdouglas, May 18, 2010.

  1. on two of my four plants the centers of the leaves are dark purple it looks like it is spreading a little from center out
    i have lst'd so its very obvious cause you can see all the tops

    i read thru some sick plant guides best i can figure is a response to cold temps
    lights on = 78-81
    lights off = 63-68

    water ph going in is about 7 but coming out is low near 5 or so using a liquid water tester
    is it a PH problem exclusively? PH causing a nute lockout?

    i did not get a chance to take a shot this morning cause it was about to be lights out when i was leaving

    any ideas w/o seeing pics yet?
  2. one of my 3 plants has purp stem at the base but it gets green as it go's up the stem but the stems oof leafs ar purp aswell
  3. i have had purple stems for a bit, but not concerned read it could be genetics, plants looked healthy as can be until i went to 12/12
  4. more details
    plants have been under unideal conditions from the start 7 full weeks of veg
    only last three were better and last 2 in a tent and very stable
    started veg nutes 5 weeks in 1/4 strength every other water
    plants looked great before nutes and after didnt see a difference
    over 500 watt cfl
    gradually swapped out 6500 for 2700 bulbs and lengthened dark periods over a weeks time
    3 days into 12/12 and the purple has crept onto the leaves
    i will have pics later today

    i know its kinda pointless w/o pics but as u can imagine i am a little nervous/anxious
  5. Is there a way to upload directly from an iPhone
  6. There sure is. And theres also a way of finding your exact address from them, becuase photo's on iphones are geotagged ;)
  7. i keep my location off unless i need it for a quick app
    also turned off in the camera app i use

    not sure it would be any diferent than uploading from my pc on my home internet, still easily tracked

    so how do i upload the photos from my phone?
  8. finally pics
