    Okay, my plant is in early flowering and it is starting to get purple stems leading to the fan leaves I wanted to know is this some kind of deficiency or overage of something or is it normal?

    same thing here. my plants started showing purple stems only on the fan leaves, going into flowering, but i haven't been able to find out what caused it. it could be a deficiency of something, or it could just be the genetic make-up of the plant. i would say don't worry to much about it, but if you have pictures, maybe it could show something else.

    Well if it was a def. then the lower leaves should start to have grey spots due to the plant starting to eat itself. Are the veins on the leafs past the red stems the same color or are they green still? If it is a def. then the veins will turn red on that plant too. I have a blueberry widow plant some of the older, larger fan leaves will turn red. Just the genetics. Maybe take your p and k up a little bit and see if she likes it. just increase those by 10% and see if she is okay.

    same here. only purple on the stems, nowhere else. stop by my thread a little later, and i'll have detailed pics up with the purple stems in clear view. you should compare yours to mine, and see if its the same or not.

    They look great!. I think the red stems are just the genetics. What is your water (RO or tap) and are you feeding it any calcium and magnesium?

    soil? You should add some cal-mag and a light dosage of bloom ferts. Let them go crazy

    It is a mix of miracle grow cactus mix and african violet mix and just organic mix to fill the top. I have this stuff called orchid mix and its supposedly has all these nutes and other stuff for the plants i also think its a blooming nute idk correct me if im wrong

    min/max temps???

    what are your temps at night? cooler nighttime temps can lead to purplish colors on the plant... if they're doing well otherwise and your night temps are 60F or lower, its probably just that. great for bag appeal! best of luck.

    My temps get to about 50 but they don't go any lower that is like the lowest it will get if im lucky or unlucky i guess lol

    Could be the reason. Temps should be above 60 at night. My temps never go down past 68 and my stems are purple because of genetics

    either way...

    if they're doing good keep it up. like i said, bag appeal!
