Question


It really depends on the grower and what you want to put into this. I don't recommend pushing new seedlings and the key here is to keep them health since they do carry a virus gene. I have seen folks push them from seed to blooms in one year, it can be done if you do this right. But again to push them may kill them? Do check out our website as we have been growing them for a while now and able to cross them now for three years in a row.

Sun. I don't know what type of datura that you have. Some like it dry and some like it wetter. Most do like good drainage. Most do like some richness in the soil. Dry and wet are different depending where you are. I give my dats some afternoon shade but tis is Texas, not Ohio. I am giving them more moisture since we are so droughty and I am looking into getting some D. discolor that grows in the California deserts.

My daturas do very well


they seem to love the full , hot, sun,and seem to thrive in all climates and conditions, In my opinion, they seem really hardy, invasive and impossible to get rid of once well established,, I love the sweet smelling giant daturas in all colors,, blessings,, Beth

brugs and daturas


I've grown both, but mickey you for got to mention that while daturas only get 3-4 feet tall, brugs are actually 25- 30 foot tall trees! They are in the same family, but brugs are MUCH easier to start and keep alive.

Maybe where you live. I find Daturas a snap and all the feeding and watering needed for brugs , a pain. the datura are known to grow wild here in central Texas.

brugs and daturas


I'm in West Virginia, we cannot leave plants outside in the winter, and I love my brugs, even if I have to water tham 3c times a day, its well worth the effort to do all the watering.

Yes , I love them too, I just was saying that "Difficulty" changes from place to place. Brugs were a lot easier when I lived in Hawaii.
