Grow Q&A: Stems and Leaves Turning Purple

Relative Humidity -Not sure, have a monitor on the way What is the canopy temperature? What water are you using? Reverse Osmosis RO? Well water?Greetings, ladies. Thanks for writing us with a very good question. The primary areas a plant receives nutrition from are: light photon energyatmosphere CO2 and O2 and medium H2O and mineral nutrients. An example of healthy plants, with leaves cupped upwards toward the light.

You did not mention any discoloration of the leaves, which is good, leaving us to focus mostly on hydration and not mineral deficiencies. But to start, we need to make a distinction between the terms wilting and drooping.

When it comes to drooping leaves, the issue is most often due to over -watering, believe it or not. Wilting leaves, which is actually defined as having water loss or being dehydrated, is obviously associated with a lack of water. Wilting leaves will be dry to the touch and even a bit crumbly. Over-watering can also cause the soil or grow medium to compress and suffocate the roots, which respire by breathing in oxygen O2 during the dark or night cycle.

If the grow medium becomes too compacted, the breathable roots may lose their ability to respire and absorb oxygen, which they use to convert sugars to energy.

Now, if your plants are more wilting than drooping, meaning they are dry and crumbling, the issue is more likely to be under-watering. Test the soil for moisture content by pressing your index finger about an inch down into the medium.

You should feel some moisture and coolness.


While watering plants twice a day sounds like plenty of water, if you are only pouring in a few drops, it might not be enough. An example of drooping plants, with heavy, wet sagging leaves. Saturate the medium well, until you see the first drops seep out of the bottom of the container.

That will be enough water for the day. It is also a good idea to let the medium become fairly dry—at least near the surface of the medium—before attempting to water the plant again. It is important to remember that while the plant itself breathes in CO2, the roots beneath the surface breath in oxygen O2 during the night cycle. This is an essential part to healthy plant growth and development. And a dry, aerated medium goes a long way in allowing air to permeate the root zone and roots to breathe in their precious O2.

To fix the drooping, allow the medium to dry out overnight completely and use a thin stick i. Poke around the edges, about an inch or two down, making a circling motion with the stick to make small holes. Take another thin stick and use it as a support stake, if necessary. Stake it near the base of the plant and rest or tie the main stem to it. If they are, this could also be a sign they are stretching for light. Make sure your plant is directly under the light source and receiving around 18 hours of light per 24 hours to help it vegetate.

Like the title says I just got done transplanting and now I'm having a little trouble and would like to get some expert advice, I tried searching but could not find a very clear answer, any advice is greatly appreciated and I'll start from the beginning. Running- starter cubes transplanted into 4x4x4 rockwool, everyone had a good root systems coming out when transplanted, stems were purple at transplant, running house and gardens entire line with nothing else other than great white, after transplanting they were very droopy for about 3 days and I was afraid I overfed so I flushed everyone out with multiple gallons of water and re-fed with a ppm solution my water comes out at ppm already, so after the nutes were added with a PH of 5.

As of right now there sitting on the table and I'm not flooding, just watering them as the cubes dry out. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you. I want these babys looking green and lush!

The purple stems COULD be a nute thing, but I wouldn't worry about it too much if it's only on some plants and not others, as I have noticed some strains exhibit the purple stem trait much more than others, for whatever reason The yellowing and droopy leaves sounds like you might be overwatering though.

I'd try to water a bit less often. It's especially easy to overwater rockwool. Rockwool stays wet for a long time and isn't very aerated. Also, all of the stems are purple, not just some.

Sea Of Green Guest. When I see yellowing drooping leaves I think N first, S second. Because both deficiecies can look similar. And if the purple stems can't be attributed to low temperature, or genetics, then it's probably sulpher deficency. Epsom salt. Wow, that is some great info, thanks a bunch, as far as the epsom salts how should I apply it, 1 teaspoon for a couple gallons? Judging from the info posted it is sulfur or N deff. Thanks for the input. I think it's really unlikely that it would be the sulfur Just got home and got to doing a little more research, this seems to be spot on an N deff.

Any other advice on this would be greatly appreciated, do I need to bump my ppm's up with my next feed? Please gimme some help here guys, things are happenin fast.

I transplanted it into a 32oz container where I hope to keep it because this is my micro grow. But like I said, it was already turning light green a couple days before I transplanted it. I was going to make a tea from alfalfa pellets to give it a shot of N The stems are also a bit purple so I was thinking it has a phosphorous def. Besides that on the one plant, most of my plants suffer from droopy leaves. I really don't know what the heck is with it. I don't think they're underwatered.

I water every days when the soil is dry 2" down and the cup feels light. I watered them a couple days ago so they should be fine on water, but they're still droopy. Maybe I'm overwatering when I go to give them water? I don't know. I was told the roots might not be getting enough oxygen so for the 2 big plants that I transplanted I mixed the soil up with a lot more perlite to help in drainage and oxygen to the roots.

It might be the watering schedule as you should water as needed rather than frequently.

Correct Christmas cactus problems, such as a limp Christmas cactus, with these simple tips. Wilted or limp Christmas cactus is sometimes caused by a lack of water or too much direct sunlight.

Common Solutions for Wilting/ Drooping Leaves

Continue to water sparingly every few days until the soil is lightly moist. Soil that is too wet causes Christmas cactus problems too. Poor drainage and soggy roots can make Christmas cactus very limp.

If your wilted or limp Christmas cactus has leaves that appear to be parched or scorchedmove it to an area with more shade, particularly in the afternoon. When the Christmas cactus is very limp and the soil is soggy, repot into fresh soil.

Remove the limp Christmas cactus from the pot and gently remove as much soil as possible. Avoid future Christmas cactus problems by mixing your own soil for repotting.

Use a good quality potting soil at two parts potting soil to one part sand or vermiculiteassuring sharp drainage. Even if the soil is not soggy, repotting may be the solution to reviving a limp Christmas cactus. While the plant likes to be tight in the pot, moving it to a slightly larger container with fresh soil every few years helps avoid Christmas cactus problems. When all your blooms drop at once, expect an outstanding show next year from what was once your limp Christmas cactus.

You are growing some beautiful and stinky weed plants, and everything is going fine and dandy, until all of a sudden, you realize that the leaves of your weed plants are drooping.

Tm ehi no load 2019

Oh no, you have a problem, and it might be a pretty severe problem. Why are my weed leaves drooping? Well, drooping weed leaves can be caused by a number of issues, most notably overwatering your cannabis plants, a humidity level that is way too low, or it could have something to do with the nutrients you are feeding your plants. Now, a lot of people might think that pot leaves are drooping due to underwatering, but this is generally not the case. In fact underwatering marijuana plants usually always results in wilted leaves, not drooping leaves.

We will discuss the difference between wilting and drooping leaves later on below. The point here is that overwatering your pot plant can cause the roots to take in too much water, therefore causing your plants to suck up too much water. The result here is that your pot plants will have leaves that are way too heavy with water weight, and essentially, your pot plants are drowning in water. There are a few different ways in which you can tell if you are overwatering your pot plants.

All of these methods work just fine, but best is if you use a combination of the following methods to tell if your pot plant is too wet, or on the other hand, if it is too dry. One of the easiest ways to figure out if you are overwatering your pot plants is by simply sticking your fingers into the soil or growing medium.

Ideally, the top inch of soil should be relatively dry before you water your plants again. If the soil is soaking wet, even at the very top, you know that you are overwatering your plants. The soil at the top, or about an inch down, should never be bone dry, but if its wet enough to stick to your fingers, especially in muddy clumps, you are overwatering your plants. Another good and very reliable way to tell if you are overwatering your cannabis plants is to get a soil sensor.

A soil sensor will tell you how much moisture content is in the soil and this will let you know whether the soil is extra dry, wet, or in between. Yet another way to tell if you are overwatering your plants, or underwatering them, is to pick up the pot and feel how heavy it is.

Now, for a point of comparison, you can always get another pot of the same size, fill it with soildry soil, and see how much it weighs in comparison to the pot with your marijuana plant in it. Alright, so there are a couple of things that you can do in order to fix this issue of overwatering your pot plants, in which case it should also fix the issue of your droopy leaves. The easiest way to fix this issue is simply by watering your plant less often, or when you water it, give it less water.

Use the above methods to figure out if you are overwatering your pot plants, and if this is the case, simply give them less water. Wait an extra day or two longer between watering your plants than you usually would, and reduce the amount of water you give them too. Another thing that you can do in order to avoid overwatering your weed plants is to get soil or planting medium with better drainage.

On that same note, you should be using a mixture of perlite, coco coir, and soil in for potting medium.
