    Should the fan leaves or sugar leaves start to turn purple before harvest? These leaves weren’t purple before but are def a strong purple now.. any reasons? I think I’m almost ready to harvest lol.. couple people said a week or two.. so should I wait? Or harvest before the lights come on tomorrow morning?

    Are these outside? Cooler temps will cause plants to purple up.

    Nope. In my basement. Not very cold down there at all. I’d say at least room temp or a bit warmer most times..

    My Mimosa plant had some purple tops and it has been inside my tent and the tent has been pretty warm(close to 80 degrees). As THG notes, cooler temps can/will cause purple color. Genetics plays a big part too. I grew some buckeye purple a few years ago that was incredibly purple. You are lucky you are getting purple. It is a nice look.

    Hmmm, weird eh. Guess a lot of different factors then! The outer leaves were pretty green a couple days ago too with like no yellow.. I’m not sure if you can tell if any of those pics, but most of them are turning yellow now too! .. that I sign the plant is getting ready to be harvested too?

    They are fading. That is a good thing.

    I know usually personal preference, but in your opinion, would I be wrong to just harvest tomorrow morning?! Been getting heck from the gf as well lol. She doesn’t like that it smells up the house ‍♂️

    It looks ready to me. It will continue to smell though. Trimming time at my house can make the neighborhood smell.
