The color does not actually affect the rate at which plants grow, however color can be a good indicator for defeciencies that will hinder a plants growth. Healthy plants will be their natural color, this can range to just about anything. Many plants are green, this is a result of the chlorophyll they produce which is used for photosynthesis. Defeciences and color vary in different plants, but a few examples are:
-purple or reddish tint of older leaves in Brussel sprout and swede plant leaves is phosphorus defeciency.
-marbling and tinting of leaves in cauliflower and broccoli leaves is calcium deficiency.
-yellowing of tomato plant leaves is magnesium deficiency.
