The color of the marijuana begins to show in the flowering phase
It's not just him green the color of cannabis, we can find violet, red, bluish varieties and even almost blackish. If we want to give a touch of color and joy in our gardens we can use more colorful varieties.
These types of varieties begin to show its splendor in full bloom. The change of Marijuana color is due to anthocyanins. The tones of the different cannabis varieties are produced due to anthocyanins and the mixture of other pigments, almost entirely flavonoids.
Anthocyanins were not discovered until 1835, thanks to the German pharmacist Ludwig Clamor Marquart, which based his studies on the peas of Mendel's study. Who do not study in biology at Mendel? Do you remember the green peas smooth or yellow rough?
We will go a little deeper into the issue of changing the hue of our plants. If we know what factors are involved, we can control these parameters a little more in our crops.
What are anthocyanins? How do they change the color of cannabis?
Are some water soluble pigments (water soluble), which stain flowers, leaves or stems. They originate abundantly in the vacuoles of plant cells. Anthocyanins are classified within the flavonoid group. his main function is to attract predators, which will be in charge of the dispersion of the seeds when consuming the fruits.
Currently there are more than 300 varieties of anthocyanins, but, only a few are edible, which we can find in berries, grapes, tomatoes, etc.
The color that anthocyanins cause in plants is closely related to PH levels. When the levels are higher than 7 (alkaline or basic) they show bluish tones; if it is between 5 and 7 (neutral conditions) the plants offer purple colors; If the acidity level drops below 5, the plants will look reddish.
During the growth we will not see how the colors are shown, it will be when the flowering phase progresses and the plant ceases to produce chlorophyll. Anthocyanins begin to accumulate and become visible to our eyes.
What other factors can cause the color change of marijuana?
A nitrogen deficiency (N) causes an increase in the production of anthocyanins. That is why we perceive that leaves and stems turn purple.
Ultraviolet (UV) light activates phytochrome photoreceptors that cause plants to increase the production of anthocyanins. If the plants do not receive a minimum of light they will not show their colors. During flowering occurs in autumn, chlorophyll degrades and disappears, while anthocyanins are synthesized.
Another influential factor in the color of cannabis They are the temperature parameters. Many varieties, even if they contain anthocyanins, will not show shades unless temperatures drop (<10ºC). There are some growers that let the plants go cold for the last two weeks before being harvested. With this technique sacrifice a little fattening of the inflorescences, but an increase in resin is achieved due to stress and favors the change of colors.
What functions do anthocyanins perform?
The anthocyanins have mainly two functions in the plants:
- By increasing the amount of ultraviolet light, the production of anthocyanins increases, which serve to protect you from this type of light.
- They change the cannabis color to showy hues to attract pollinators, thus ensuring the perpetuity of the species.
What other pigments can change the color of cannabis?
|PIGMENTS||TYPE OF PIGMENT||COLORS|
|Chlorophyll||Vegetable and photosynthetic||Green|
|Anthocyanins (Flavonoid)||Vegetable||Purple, Orange, Red, Blue|
|Flavonoids||Vegetable||Yellow, Orange, Red, Blue, Magenta|
|Carotenoids||Vegetable and photosynthetic||Yellow, Orange, Red|
With the mix of all these pigments, the marijuana colors they show great diversity, which provide us with the opportunity to contemplate such beauty.
At the end of flowering many varieties change the color of the leaves. In our catalog of Buddha Seeds you can find We give, which may turn reddish or Magnum which can dye the leaves a blackish color.
Yes during the growth phase the color of cannabis acquires more colorful shades, it will not be due to anthocyanins, the most likely is that we are facing some lack or excess of nutrients.
There are a number of users who usually associate purple plants with a low psychoactive effect, but instead they do not know that there is development work behind them, not all of them are characterized by the same.
