    I don't think that's nute stress bro!
    Maybe on the plant that has yellowing tips!
    Or your grow temps are too hot (burning leaves)!
    Other than the yellowing, your bitches look fine 2me!

    Lack of Calcium & Magnesium can cause purple stems as well.

    DO NOT PANIC. A seedlings purple stem doesn’t necessarily indicate an unhealthy plant. Please take the following possibilities into consideration:

    1 - Purple Stems could be a result of that wonderful thing we call genetics, if this is the reason, you are to expect a purple stem throughout the life of the plant. It must be noted that purple stems aren’t a dominant trait, and are rarely genetically induced.

    2 - A baby sprout with a purple stem is almost always 100% natural. Young seedlings are still adjusting to their environment and may be slightly lacking in a Nutrient. If this is the case, healthy plants will regain their green/greenish-brown color within a few days to a week or two.

    3 - If you have ruled out the possibilities of genetics and the seedlings adjustments to life, you should begin looking for a nutrient deficiency. Purple stems are commonly caused by a Phosphorous (P) or Magnesium deficiency, if there is a P deficiency you may also notice symptoms such as brittle leaves or greyish spots. To assist the uptake of Phosphorous (as well as most other nutes) you should ensure the pH is slightly acidic-- 6.0 will suffice.

    If you want a deeper purple let the plant get cool during lights off and they go really pretty.

    I'm siding with the same opinion as Redeyedfrog....

    You should be adding CalMag, and ALL other nutes your bitches are gona need at all times PERIOD!!! Not when you see purple stems. (Of course certain nutes needs to be used at certain times, at specific increments.)

    But,
    I use CalMag!! Been using it!!!
    I've grown FIRE!!! Been doing it!!!
    And I've got purple stems!! Always have!!

    Lol with all that said; Nice plants bro!! (get that yellowing corrected on the 1 bitch! Now that looks like nute or heat stress! Other then that you will b A1!)

    GrowerMan, Out!!!

    Purple on the leaf stems is fine like BudMane's images show. I dont think he's having problems. But purple main stems throughout a plant is a sign of trouble.
