HELP ASAP! is this mould or is my bud turning purple

16 posts in this topic

so i noticed the tips of my buds going a dark colour. I assumed it was simply my bud turning purple as it was just the tips of the bud. However now Im getting paranoid its that black mould shit. I wouldnt say its black, but its dark - and to me it looks dark purple... But its questionable.

The colouration isnt at the centre of the bud... but the outside.

I have attached an image. please look and give me ur input.

20171003_134230.thumb.jpg.07ea6e008867450f385de6745123ee9b.jpgI have a similar question.

Got two outdoor girls - not sure of the strain; just threw them in the ground. Had some powdery mildew a month ago when we had a couple of humid, wet days but only on the fan leaves. Cut away all the mildew and any excess foliage at that point to be on safe side.

 

Have been checking them daily and close to harvest and noticed purple/grey on tips of most mature buds. There is some  purpling up the stalk of the plant so hoping its just a Purps hybrid but panicking. Any ideas?!

Jembo,

 

Nevermind that you responded to a conversation out of 2012, LOL...

 

But your flowers are looking great.

 

If you are worried about purpling stems (or red stems in some strains), you could add a little CalMag  or Epsom Salts if you want to.  Excessive reddening or purpling of the stems could be a Magnesium deficiency. 

 

Or you could simply ignore the colored stems.  Some strains will color-up anyway.

 

The main thing to avoid is adding much of anything, as the flowers are in their end-stage.  Excessive minerals and salts and nutrients in the tissues of the plant will make for bad-tasting smoke.  Be sure to flush at least a couple weeks before harvest and then feed only plain water.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
