    I'm getting quite a bit of purple on one of my auto blue mazar as it is just finishing up, the rest not at all. Also my Oh zone last year had some fade, some turn purple and some stay green through till the end. I find that different strains/pheno's will express differently even with the exact same conditions re temps/nutes.

    My Gorille de Raisin in the Spring crop was purple as hell. It did have a few frosts on it though. I lost a couple of patches this season to the helo and LEOS, and my best GdR was among the ones chopped. So not sure what it will do in normal fall temps. I may have another one somewhere. Will have to check labels later on. Right now I'm doing a lot of staying away.

    Touch wood I've only lost one field in the years I've done this but it was a big one. Now I stick to 20 or so and don't have issues but yes it does become a very intense time just before harvest time. That's why I devote half my outdoor to auto's in search of one that's consistently good.... the search continues lol.

    My 2 GdR's and 1 Peach were staked down, so they were wide, but barely chest high. The others were all really young. I kind of think I got a dime dropped on me. I was seen crossing a road at daylight in full camo. Damn quiet cars.

    They saw the our 250 plants from a chopper about a week before harvest but thankfully no one at site when they came in. I had another 50 plant grow they boated passed to get another guys up the same river once, never saw mine lol. Sometimes luck, good or bad plays a huge role ;).

    In a first run of 12 beans from a chuck. I got 9 different phenos out of a plant that normally colors well. Of those 9, one was straight green, all the way out, and one was 50:50 with leaf edges staying green. Only the branch and the bud leaves turned, and then more so to the bud end of the branch.

    Yes, pheno's can act differently to coloring. Thing is,,,,For outdoors and late season temp coloring. It can happen to any plant. naturally, the more the plant is prone to, the more it will. It's from nutrient blocking due to the cold roots...When the coloring happens to those strains not known for coloring.

    How are you stopping the fade?

    I keep feeding them enough nitrogen to stay green, though some strains fade on their own. (genetic)

    I did try that actually and yup still fade lol. I've always gotten fade outdoors but yup indoor I don't. I was trying to see if I could get them to stay green but nope lol. I have auto's now that are dropping leaves while others are not. I'm going to see if some amino additives have any effect on my photo's this run.

    Also I'm not sure if I should even be trying to stop it. As for the PM, I get it way before fade starts and bud rot as well has taken a foothold in my girls and I doubt fade causes or enables the moth caused rot we get here. This is the reason I did want try though. It's harvest day for the rest of the auto's today...... woohooo lol. Actually I loath trimming :(.

    They will grow and they will flower. You just will wish that you got more bud because they will act just like an auto but they weren't bread to grow that way..
    Something that people seem to forget is that when you grow outdoors the trigger for flowering is different. Indoors we can simply decrease the photo period by 6 hours all at once, where as, of course, we cannot do this outside. Outside, the plants respond to the waning of the photo period. They do not wait for 12 hours of light, they simply respond when they notice the shortening of the days. If this were not true, then plants in Florida would not even begin to bloom outdoors until the end of September or October, but somehow I harvested my bud in October and November when I lived there. If anyone doubts my assertions, then just try it indoors. You can make a plant bud in more than 12 hours of light if you reduce slowly from 18 hours and subtracting 1-2 minutes a day. I have even cut plants from 18 hours to 15 hours all at once and they started to bud, but usually you will see them start at around 14 hours of light if you reduce the light period slowly like I said.

    The length of the dark is what triggers plants to flower. I'm in NW Florida. My length of day is 13 hours 18 minutes, and losing 1 minute 35 seconds today, and increasing with each passing day. Strain will decide exactly when you flower. Or like in my case, if the sun decides not to shine in June, they will start way early.

    Ya I'm at 14 hours and no sign of flowering on any of my photo's (4 different strains) I think Larry is right in that it has a lot to do with strain and light.

    It's crazy how days are longer the further north you are. But you guys are losing it at a faster rate. And I would be willing to bet good money we will all be equal on September 22nd.

    All of mine that is old enough is flowering already, thanks to no sun in June. I had planned on planting right through like I did last season, but with my troubles, I may just leave well enough alone.
