Differnt daturas have different types of pods that dry out in different rates. I find the D. wrightii and meteloides pods dry uo and split fairly quickly, with their husks flaking off dry. The double yellow D. metels makes a thicker, wetter skinned husk that does not split off as quick and if it is fairly wet, I will take the husk off the pods so the seeds can dry easier. I do this only to the husks that have split, showing mature seeds, but the husk is still soggyish. My spell check says "soggyish" is not a word. Oh well.

I do believe this is my first year for a datura lilac color, I had one real big one and couple little ones that I do not think bloomed as I guess it was to late and they only got to be about 1 ft. The seed pods are real prickly and I was told by swap buddy to wear gloves when removing and that they contain poison also , I think some can be allergic so be careful! I have just removed some pods, and I think I will have a good bit of seed if you want this color, lilac? send me a pm will share! Real nice new plant.
sweet as honey, has never turned
a soul away!

I never had problems touching the plant and seed pods but I am not allergic or sensitive to things in general. Just a tough ol' broad.
