    Lower temps

    What strain is it ?
    It not all sativa that turn purple... The color often appear when the plant is growing with lower temps, if it not a strain with any purple.
    Really good call on not going peak out in you're flowering room !
    Maybe someone else know more about this...

    Well don't expect them to turn purple unless it starting to get cold in you're area, something I doubt. Even in my north cannabis land it not getting cold... How far are you in the flowering ? I'll check the updates !

    Only genetically purple plants can turn purple.
    Why worry about purple when you should be worrying about your overfert problem and why your plants look root bound?

    I will be soooooo happy when this 'purple infatuation' craze passes ... it's raised street prices to ridiculous levels, and ignores 'pot basics' ... good luck with your plants, though

    "Root bound" is the definition of when the plants roots run out of space to grow and effectively choke of a large portion of the "root ball". This effects the health of the plant severely, meaning it will most likely kill the plant depending on how big the plant itself is.

    Not even many 'Purps' out there worth smokin if ya axe me. Only advantage IMO to a purple plant is camo for an outdoor application.

    ...and like Reaper said; prices on purps are fuckin WHACKED! Bag appeal is over rated.

    Its been awhile since anyone commented on this. But for everyone to know in the future, you CAN turn almost any cannabis plant purple. It's simple the last 3 weeks of flowering just strave the plant of Nitrogen. I see it all the time. Home-grown regs, that have been starved of nitrogen, turn purple and people trying to sell it off at $60 an 8th.

    You see it all the time...? Hardly likely, as your statement is less than accurate. Curious...where do you get your info? Nitrogen is restricted thruout the flower cycle. According to this...all of my plants should be purple.

    The only way I've ever seen a non purple strain show purple is thru phosphorus deficiency, or micronute/heavy metals overdose...which is nothing to strive for.
    For those interested...purple offers nothing to cannabis flavor or quality...period. It's just a 'marketable' color.

    The plant has to be capable of even producing a red or purple pigment to show purple, even under severe deficiencies. The reason N def often brings on purple coloration is that N def means breakdown of chlorophyll, and the absence of GREEN pigment allows OTHER pigments (purple, red, yellow) to show through. Like fall trees. Sugar maples turn bright red. Norway maples under the same conditions just turn yellow.

    U mean like in this other plant I have outdoors.I can see a little bit of purple in the hairs on her.

    so does this mean that she might turn purple?
    anyway I am over and done with trying to tund my plants buds purple.

    if it just happen to turn purple then that cool but I ain't expecting it to happen.

    sheet now days I'll be happy with my finished product as long as they turn out a good smoke.

    Hells yeah, there ya go- pink pistils. Very pretty. Your outdoor plants have been looking great lately, too. I don't know if pink in the pistils is indicative of pink on other parts of the plant, but they still look very cool.

    Well maybe I'm completely wrong, and maybe the plants had too high nutes, or we're too cold. But I'm pretty sure nitrogen def., can do it as well. And I'm definately not saying its anything to strive for. Unless you enjoy trying to grow unhealthy plants.

    What I meant by saying I see it all the time. I mean people trying to sell "shwag" bud that's purple for outragous prices.

    No, yours turned purple because it has 'purple' genetics. Cooler temps will help trigger the change, but it's not the cause of it turning purple.

    As stinky said...it has to have the ability to change into it's fall colors, before it can do so.

    Might want to focus your responses to posts that are still active.
    My guess is that they were harvested last year.

    Would sure love to see your buds though, since you seem to be good at judging other's plants. Granted, giving other growers advise is empowering, but if all you want to do is criticize other members hard work...then likely you should know what you are talking about, first.
