Bok Choy Plants

Stems Turning Purple

Anonymous added on February 18, 2014 | Answered

I would like to know why my bok choy and cilantro stems turn purple. It seem like they have hard time growing bigger. Is the soil too rich or too light? Is it too much or too little water? Thank you very much.

    It is caused by a phosphorous deficiency. Some bone meal will help correct it.
