I have a datura that is very special to me. It has hung in there, but not done as well as hoped. I have recently read that daturas don't particularly like acidic soils. The datura I have is planted in jungle growth, which looks like an acidic soil. I am thinking about adding lime to the soil to raise the pH. Does this sound like a good idea?

If it's in a jungle like area, is it possible it's not getting enough sun? Can you post a picture?

As well as they do here in AZ, I'd have to agree, they need tons of sun and they do love alkaline soils.
