    My Jems are on their seventh week.
    Some "hair" have started going yellow...
    Nice Buds but no purple colours yet. I very much hope they go purple.
    Otherwise I expect Mossy to provide a how-to-turn-the-ladies-purple guide :joint::peace:
    Pics are from the 6th week, they are much bigger now :twisted:

    if you can drop the temp to 60 F at night, they will purple.[​IMG] i know dj short has written about putting ice cubes instead of water during the last week of harvest for the same reason.

    Temperature wise I am close to 60 F (15 C), but I will now try harder towards this.
    The ice cubes sound like a cool idea too. I will try it on two out of the four ladies and will update this post.
    Thanks for the info tingpoon :joint:

    Ice cubes? I'm confused please elaborate. I starting to think this strain is a big hype. Have only seen one grow where buds were purple. I've seen more purp off my LR2s than these.

    towards the end, give em less water, and put icecubes on top of the soil, around the plant, so when the ice cubes melt, the plant gets a ton of cold water. this causes it to turn purple in order to acclimate.

    I heard ur suppose to feed plants room temperature water but maybe the stress will turn them purple. I'll try it on one on my ladies

    it is one of the phenotypes that gives the purple buds, it doesnt have shit to do with temps.

    yes sir! +rep for you, ALL THOUGH some strains do turn purple in cold temps! it mainly has to do with phenos

    So your saying if I grow GDP with full co2 at 86F when lights are on and 76F at night my buds will be purple? Cause I always see GDP grown during summer indoors have no purple whatsoever and during winter time be straight dark purp. And even My Lowryder 2 turn a little purple during winter time so yea I think it does have something to do with temps. -1

    no it fucking doesn't!
    SO YOU ARE SAYING every strain will turn purple with low temps? NO!!
    seriously, it has NOTHING to do with temps, it's all genetics!

    No I'm not. I'm saying at least every strain that has the word "purple" in it's name should turn purple with low temps. I wouldn't expect any less from them.

    not every "purple" strain turns purple with low temp, most purple strains turn purple no matter what, that is if you have good genetics

    Here's an outdoor plant that I recently brought inside. It was a REAL deep purple, but the heat of the indoors is slowly stealing her hues. I'd love to leave her outside for some good purple bud, but it's getting too cold, and she's got a few weeks to go. Temperature DEFINITELY plays a role in color. It may not be the determining factor with certain genetics, but you can make some bud that's not even known for going purple turn by lowering the temps. You can also keep a even a purple plant from reaching it's purple potential by running high temperatures as is clearly the case with this one. She was DEEP purple a little over a week ago until brought indoors, and it's slowly fading in the higher temps.

    This girl has truly been beat to hell.
