if you are on 12/12, 57 night time is great. Remember, soil temp is always warmer than leaf / plant temp. An alternative is to LIGHTS OFF during the day when temps are warmer and ON at night when they are cooler. You can roll 12 hrs of dark twice around to switch the clock on your plants.I use my tent lights to raise temps as the nights are cooler. Daytime room temp is normally around 75F so it is perfect. Only thing I have to work on is Rh...

IMO the cooler nights are even better. I love running my garage tents in the winter way better than the summer but only downfall is potential mold issues as mold is always worst when it is humid and cool. My winters don't freeze but the nights dip to 40s even high 30s but inside the garage inside the tent with the light running its perfect. Even outside its still great I grow all the through winter outside plants still do good. I think you should embrace the cool night time swings especially since you are running that GDP I sent you. If I were you I would wait until you are half way through flower then start manipulating your temps so that you have big 25 to 30 degree swings. The purple strains LOVE big temp swings that is what triggers the color change. Contrary to popular belief its not just that the temps getting cool it is the heat of the day also. The extreme swing of hot to cold triggers the plants to flush dark colors. This is a growers trick to bring out color. During your last few weeks of flower you should ice down the pots at night. Just make a little mound of ice cubes in each pot before lights out. This trickles down in the roots and chills the plant tricking it into thinking the winter freeze is coming. This will help the purple color even more. I really hope the purple color of the mom comes through it would be lame if all of them ended up being green phenos LOL

Its just gonna depend on the stretch. I ran them outside and I did a few small plants inside but it was a few seasons back and I have finished hundreds of plants since then, I honestly just cant remember how their stretch was back when I ran them. Generally speaking I would have let them veg just a little longer. Get them 4 or 5 inches closer to the net but no biggie. If they don't stretch enough then just go on Amazon or go to a hardware store and buy a package of 4inch x 4inch square trellis netting. Its very cheap it will be like $6. Slide the tomato cages out gently to be used for another grow. Cut your trellis long enough so that you can stretch it to every corner of your 4x4 tent. Leave enough slack to tie it up. I like to tie up the trellis tight well above the canopy and once I feel like its tight enough then I slowly slide/wiggle it down the pipes an inch at a time until its set perfect on the canopy. As you drop it down you need to gently pull and weave the branches through so that its uniform. It wont be perfect but the goal spread them evenly so every little square has once branch sticking through. also you can just slide the tomato cages out then use a sharpie and tape measure to mark the bottom of the metal wire then use tin snips and cut them all evenly. Then stick them back in. This will drop the height of the cages down you would just need to gently feed the branches back through. Wait on the stretch first to see where it stops.

should i try going full strength on the big bloom and grow big on the next feeding ?
I would pump up the nutrients for sure. They look healthy but they do look just a little light in color but sometimes I don't comment on that because it's really hard to gauge that off of the photos. The grow light often puts out a different light spectrum and also sometimes the way the camera lens catches it often it can be much different than if you were seeing it in person. I like to see a nice healthy robust green. You don't want to overdo it so ease into it but definitely start increasing the strength of your brew. You can bump up the CalMag also that will help too.

Go 3/4 next then watch. If its looking good then after that one do the full dose. That CalMag shot should help too.
