As the topic states, some of my plant leaves and stems have deep purple spots and are deformed. The strain is supposed to be on the shorter side as I've never grown this strain before but it seems really small . Only about 4ft tall at this point and hasn't grown much at all in the last month(outside grow). Any help would be appreciated. Also of note, this is the 1st time I've grown in this spot of my property which is full sun and an area where I grew mint tea last year...thanks in advance...

Looks like phosphorus deficiency to me. What nutes are you feeding and ph of water?

This isn't one I've experienced before. The purple could be related to cold nights but I've never seen it look like that.

Let's call on the pros ... @Aqua Man @Frankster @Moe.Red One of our resident experts will come along and most likely will be able to help you through.
Lowest temps are high 60s.

Yep, same issue. Didn't get any absolutes. One person adamant it was lack of phosphorus another said cal/mag.

Don't normally use nutes. I normally plant at the edge of a wooded area in the ground . This plant is 1st one that I have NOT planted in that location. In a raised part of my vegetable garden...mint tea was planted there last year...

Yeah, I didn't read through the 18 pages. Figured it'd be easier for you to go through than having me keep coming back with more questions than checking it again and again.

I don't think your temps are the problem. Granted there's a lot of variables but mid and upper 50's for lows this week didn't seem to phase my girls.

I'm interested in what the outcome is on this one.

Ph of your water? The raised bed could be depleted of phosphorus if previously used. How much of the total plant is affected? Older or newer growth?

@HighRootz it appears to be in new growth.
Could be excess iron that's causing phosphorus lockout in the new growth. If none of the older leaves are affected then chances are new growth will show some sort of lockout, from my observation

Not sure of Ph but the other plants are fine. Well water...about a third of the plant and mostly newer growth. It just started flowering. Would it survive if I moved it to my other location?

Should I just try hitting it with phosphorus at every watering??
