I have read everything I can find about growing variegated daturas from seed. I have found a people that say they have done it and some say that it is not possible. Anyone have any first hand knowledge about this? Also, what is the best was to root cutting of daturas? Thank you for any help.

A few weeks back I planted some variegted datura seeds (not from my datura). I got home this afternoon to find one had sprouted. It was all white leaves. Has anyone ever seen a datura sprout white before?

Hmmmm, I haven't (I wish I had :-) but Ithat isn't a good sign, without the ability to create chlorophyll it will die I think.

I accidentally "created" them from saved seed from a Black Currant Swirl hybrid. The flowers and var. looks different and I have no idea what the next gen. will look like but it's fun to find out. Good luck.

I tried germinating MANY, MANY seeds and had absolutely NO luck. I had gathered them from the mother plant, which self sowed very readily. I was sent some seeds from a fellow DG'er and hope that I can do well with these. I, too, would love to know the "correct" way to sow them. Thanks, Misty
