Hi all. I have 5 Blueberry girls growing outdoors and one of them has all of the fan leaves turning deep purple. Overall the plant still looks healthy. The other 4 plants are still all green. All plants have been grown from seed, the same in terms of location, soil, feed, pH.

Newby grower so just wondering if it is likely to be a different phenotype, or if it is some kind of nutrient deficiency? It started at the top leaves so I'm guessing it not nutrients, but just want to check.

Hi @GNick55,sorry about the lack of info. Growing in soil outdoors in 75 litre pots. Week six of flower. All plants being fed 100% strength Cyco platinum nutes. It has been getting a bit chilly at night but no other plants have any signs of purple leaves. This baby is definitely standing out from the rest. Some pics of the leaves.

Thanks for the replies - and the good news. I have always been a sucker for good looking plants with fruit and veg. Now I'm a sucker for good looking cannabis 😍 I will post some photos in a few more weeks. In the meantime I am going to try to take some cuttings and flip them back to veg 🤞

monster cropping, i take all my clones for myself between the second and third week of flower..
it’s the best for taking clones during flowering, though takes like 6 weeks to come out of it and start growing, but the plants will be mega branchy and grow fast!

I've got a couple of clones growing that I took at week 3, but I didn't take this purple plant. Hopefully I can still get a cutting to take.
I don't really have indoor growing facilities so I'm just trying to hold onto a couple of plants until I can grow outdoors again in about six months. Using a dark box with CFL on 18/6 and a small fan.

being outside it’s actually hard to tell if it’s a pheno type or the cold, i’m guessing it’s the cold..
you also can mess with the ph to bring out red, orange, blue and purple colours, but thats pretty advanced growing.
