    it happens when the branches get direct light, they start and go purple
    if ya look further down you'll see the branches are green that aren't in direct light
    even my seedlings pop up green, after a few days light the stem goes purple, it's normal

    you're not in flower and leaves aren't changing color so you are good to go,

    Temps are good, RH is good... I wouldn't worry about bits of the plant going purple, but would be more concerned about pH or lockouts if these leaves do look as "verigated" as they do in real life as they do on my monitor.

    I have circled the leaves but they don't show up in the thumbnail. Click on it and you'll see what I mean.

    What kind of soil are you using?

    Give her a little dose of Espon Salt next watering that might help.

    Been looking at Epsom salts, is any brand ok. Home bargains have them in cheap for baths, will these do?

    I would assume so since it doesn't say anything odd in the ingredients.....

    Tbh that looks like onset of Mg defficiency .

    Give her a good feeding and a foliar of magnesium epsom salts . 1/4 tsp per L should do the trick .

    It looks overwatered also with that droop going on . Let the top soil dry out 1" before rewatering

    Idk... I’d back off the feeding..... u have clawing going on in the leaves.... with purple stems seems to have the proper nitrogen, just hit her with the Epsom salts imho.
