I agree. But one of my tomatoes (Same kind) sprouted looking purple and then in less than 24 hours became normal again. ...ahhh nature's miraclesMockY wrote:A purple tone to your seedlings could also indicate phosphorus deficiency. For example, if the growing medium is too cold, tomatoes will struggle and turn purple. It does not necessarily mean there is a lack of phosphorus in the soil but an inability to absorb it. Even though I find Epsom salt to be snake oil, people use it along with warmer soil to combat this issue. Seeing as tomatoes and eggplants are related, they may share the same problem.
