probably just genetics don't sweat it.

I agree with cocohead!! More than likely genetics!! My ghsco fem cheese have started to get purple/pinkish stems and leaf stems!! And I have no dow't that it is genetics and not ph or nute problems as both of them are cock on!! Hope this has helped!!??? Good luck with the rest of your green adventure!!

Yeah rarely anything to worry about, is a trait common to many strains, some more vivid than others, here's an example, a Nirvana Misty http://www.thctalk.com/gallery/data/500/medium/Earliest_Stumpy.JPG

check mine out too, always grow from clones and always the same :)

I would say genetics too, post up a picture so we can see.

the redish/purple stems are from either too much of a temperature variation from when there off! or it could be a nitrogen deficiency personally i always use a little nitrogen in the 2nd to 3rd week of veg to makes sure!!

Surely if it was a temp/nitrogen problem the plants would look ill/weak/unhealthy

I always grow the same strain from clones, there always the same. Always a red stem from main stem to fan leaf and i dont think my plants are unhealthy, as the above picture shows. :)

I am guessing that without seeing them nobody can give you a definitive answer.

Heres a pic of mine today, looking even better :)
