Pink nugs?
    #609639 - 02/17/12 07:56 PM (4 years, 9 months ago)

Anyone have any experience growing nugs that look like this??



I have never seen anything like that in person.  I was trying to see if there is a reason the plant would turn shades of pink and red like that, if its genetics, a deficiency or certain nutes??

Just trying to expand my knowledge on cultivation anyone out there have any ideas?

Genetics and a good deal of photoshop.

Doesn't the purple in purple plants come from a deficiency of sugars or something in the plant (not any kind of nutrient deficiency)?  Could that color just be from certain conditions that could be manipulated?

well, usually when people identify the use of color doctoring it's based on noting some other color value being off in the image.  Hence the question

I have seen pink buds, nothing like what they're showing in your photo though.  Just pink hairs.  I thinks they'res a decent amount of photo shop in there as well.

many times a photo with doctored coloring will have other items in it that show a similar shift in color

Most often it's caused by cold temperatures. Next would be genetics which is the one that is most favorable.  :happyweed:

I read in another thread something about rare phenotypes producing pink pistils ...the pictures only had that though pink on the pistils the rest of the plant was bright green possibility with that phenotype plus cool temps maybe?

I have to agree with the temperature being the main cause...I have seen this many times with different strains from simply being grown outdoors. It is more just the pistols which have that nice neon pink color not so much the nugs...but they do tend to gain colors like that from being left to the point of the top leaves fading in color and being fully mature.





kind of like trees turning red, yellow and orange in their leaves when the weather really starts getting cold in the fall?  Same concept?

Umm actually no, but it's good you made that connection.

Cannabis leaves change color due to soil depletion at the end of the growing cycle. Since it's an annual plant (dies in the winter, needs seeds to sprout in the fall) it consumes all available nutrients around it to maximize reproductive viability. Since nitrogen in it's various forms (nitrates, nitrites, and nitric acids) are some of the most mobile of all nutritious compounds, they are consumed first, hence why cannabis yellows toward the end of its life cycle.

Trees on the other hand are perennial, so they need to plan ahead to be able to shake off the winter and come back in the spring. The trick there is the catch-22 where they need to photosynthesize to produce biomass, but they have no leaves. They need leaves to make leaves. How fair is that?  Now the tough part is that Chlorophyll A and B are incredibly energy intensive to produce and require massive amounts of metabolitic exertion and nutrients.  Once again, they can't do that if they don't even have leaves to fuel the cycle. So every fall when the trees start yellowing, it's not nitrogen depletion as it is with flowering eudicots and smaller angiosperms such as cannabis, it's actually the trees removing the Chlorophyll from the leaves and storing it within the xylem and phloem in the circulatory pathways within. The colors you see are the less energy intensive secondary photosynthetic compounds (carotenoids (orange) xanthophylls (yellow and red) and Phaeophytin a + b (greyish brown)) that are left behind after the chlorophyll is removed.

:thumbup:  Very educational, do you have an academic background in botany or something?  Or just your own research?  It's funny since the laws passed around here to make medicinal marijuana legal the local university has skyrocketed with botany students haha.

Yes, I have a college degree or two, and work professionally as a research scientist.
