    growing a GSC outside, she is a huge round dark green bush, with way too many tips without ever topping her…. But my other plants have started flowering, and she just gets bigger, no real buds forming yet. It isnt optimal growing conditions here, 78-46 swing, so she probably isnt too happy. But i did take alot of clones and doing the SOS, they are budding and only 1ft tall at the most. Plus the GSC leaves are dark green and sort of curly or bent, twisted?
