Purple Pot

Dear Dan, How can I get my pot to turn purple like some of the buds I see in High Times? I keep seeing these beautiful pictures of purple pot and was wondering if there’s anything I can do to grow something more like that. All of my buds come out green with red hairs. — Kid

Dear Kid,
Some pot plants turn purple due to their genetics, and some turn purple due to cold temperatures during flowering. But with most strains, there’s really no real way to force them to turn purple. You can try to use cold nighttime temps (not freezing, of course) during flowering to encourage purpling, but your best bet is to seek out some seeds of plants that are known to turn purple, such as Grandaddy Purps, Purple Wreck, Lavender, Purple Urkel or Purple Kush.
