It can it's just a color pheno showing up. you truely never know til you grow it out and harvest her. IMO always keep a clone just incase you find out she is one of you fav to keep.

Yup have had the clor stay with plants long time into flower too. As long as the overall health of the plant is good dont sweat the little things the odd light burnin of tips slight spotting happens time to time in our grow rooms as well as in mother nature and the plants have strong personality can adapt and suffer through some nasty stuff but they can hold there own.

I believe I figured it out my soil is reading 3 for ph can that be the reason for the purple in the veins?

The stem color isn't as big a sign of something wrong as the leaves curling. The key to stem color is when the plant has been growing along without issue then suddenly you see some signs of problem then you see the stems are changing color. If that PH is correct then that is certainly A problem. Get that right before working on anything else.

How are you measuring your pH? I don't see how the pH could be that low on brand new soil. The plants are only 4 days old, so nute lockout caused by pH being off is not a factor here. I am thinking it is just the pheno.

I'm still confused........exactly how are you checking your pH? Specifically what kind of pH meter are you using? Is it for testing water or soil?

If you are using one of those 2 prong testers you stick in the soil (who is HF?), throw it away--they do not work at all and are therefore worse than useless. What kind of pH up did you use? I cannot imagine going from 3 to 6.8 with 1 dose of pH up.

I also just looked up the Fafard's organic soil. It appears to me that the soil is prenuted as it says it comes with organic fertilizers in it. This could be causing problems. The soil is supposed to be between 5.5 and 6.5 after wetting. I would be quite surprised if it really was 3--I suspect your pH meter, however new plants do not like prenuted soil.
