I have plenty of plants in my bud garden growing out of it. actually the majority this year. I don't believe there is much of a cure other than keeping the plant healthy/happy for any chance. The earlier budding plants seem to do the best at growing out of it. Once they start making thc/crystal the purple goes away unless the purple it smothering it out more or less.Sometimes they come out of it. I wouldn't get to excited about the cure.
Science says so far, there is No Cure for Phytoplasma disease. Though some do grow out of it.
I had one as well I cut the top and let it go. Sprayed with a fungicide and controlled the leave hoppers grew fine and flowered perfectSo I found purple in one stalk of my outdoor grow and just assumed it was from cold, its been down to 9 C a couple nights. Then after some reading I find out I have the dreaded purple phytoplasma. I was going to cut off that entire stalk and see if the spread will stop. If I don't notice any purple in any of the buds or leaves do you guys think that it would be safe to smoke from buds that were not on the infected stalk or should I just chop the entire plant to be safe?
Growing Bruce Banner in Ottawa in pro mix soil mixed with perlite. They have been watered and fed liquid nutrients all season. I do have a leafhopper problem though and they have had powdery mildew problems off and on, I got them as clones with powdery mildew already and our summer has been very humid and hot.

I have been trying to find a solid answer to that but the internet seems shockingly split on this with some saying the purple makes the bud taste awful and other say if you see purple chop the whole plant down and bury or burn it. I want to be safe and not spread but I also dont want to kill an otherwise healthy plant.
