Purple Indica(?)
    #388732 - 03/23/10 03:04 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

Sorry for shitty quality cell phone camera pics. I don't have a camera for the macro shots, it's pretty crystally and there's subtle hints of purple which you can sort of make out in the pic. 




Definitely feels like an indica :vaped:

Aren't most purples indica?

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Well the nug isn't very purple though so that's why I wasn't sure it was indica.

:lol: most indica's don't purple, so what does that matter.  Purple is just a reaction to cold-weather anyways.

And yes even if theres just a little bit of purple, it's probably a purpling indica dom that only suffered through a little bit of cold so it just got a little bit purple.

Here's my question.  We know that there are two main generators for the purpling color of cannabis.  One is cold weather environments and the other is genetics.  Now, going back to when this genetic purple acquired this trait we could presume it also came from growing in a colder weather environment.  I would think that to be a logical explanation for how the genetic purple was acquired.  thoughts?

I didn't mean that most indicas purple, I meant that most purples are indicas.

If that makes sense.

From my novice understanding of genetics I think that the color purple (apart from it coming purely from cold weather fluctuation) most likely is the result of a random gene mutation long ago that got bred into different strains.
Unless somehow the color purple was a beneficial to the plant's reproductive success in some environment long ago. Because the visible phenotype is a result of both genetics and environment.
It depends whether the plant was found in nature and bred into a strain or someone found it as a random mutation in their garden and bred it out.
Or maybe I'm just :vaped:

nah it's been shown to be a reaction to cold-weather, i'm guessing the pigment allows the plant to retain more heat or something.

I think he means the plants which have a tendency to purple naturally. Or are you saying there AREN'T plants that purple naturally? (I'm nothing more than a noob at this. Not trying to sound like I know my shit, thats why I'm asking :P)

Here in NY, I get a lot of purpley buds, because it tends to get real cold, real quick here.

i'm saying that the purple reaction requires 2 factors, both cold weather and a genetic predispositon.

Aha, I now agree with this:

Quote:

The bright red and purple colors come from anthocyanin (an-thuh-'si-uh-nuhn) pigments. These are potent antioxidents common in many plants; for example, beets, red apples, purple grapes (and red wine), and flowers like violets and hyacinths. In some leaves, like maple leaves, these pigments are formed in the autumn from trapped glucose. Why would a plant use energy to make these red pigments, when the leaves will soon fall off? Some scientists think that the anthocyanins help the trees keep their leaves a bit longer. The pigments protect the leaves from the sun, and lower their freezing point, giving some frost protection. The leaves remain on the tree longer, and more of the sugars, nitrogen and other valuable substances can be removed before the leaves fall. Another possible reason has been proposed: when the leaves decay, the anthocyanins seep into the ground and prevent other plant species from growing in the spring.
