I have tons of seeds to plant... I have left the roots and 2 pods fell rigth next to the plant... but just in case none comes back I want to plant some seeds ... I have yellow, purple and double white... when should I plant them??? can I just start now??? I spoke with my uncle and he told me to soak the seeds for 6 hours.. but that's how they do it in Brazil... do I have to leave soaking longer than that??? also do I need a really warm place???
I've never soaked datura seeds before. Can't hurt! If you are going to grow them under lights then by all means go ahead. A little bottom heat will speed up the germination. I will start my dat seeds within the next couple of weeks in the greenhouse. I don't soak them or give them bottom heat and they take about 4-6 weeks to come up. The greenhouse is heated but not to growing temps .. just dont freeze temps.
lol... hey I am willing to try... I got so mad I planted sunflowers on the peat moss things they were on... but I did get new ones planted... of brother, let's see if they will come up!!!! the worse is that I lost the labels and the few seeds that sprouted are now a mistery...
I saw a container with purple datura... gorgeous thing!
My double white dats popped up within a couple of days,, but the purple ones are still not up and i'ts been over two weeks. Grrrrr I'm giving them more time, but sure am getting impatient.
Last year nothing sprouted, and I was so ticked that I just dumped the seed starter into a bowl and then used it later to start different seed. Imagine my surprise when the dats sprouted in among other seed I was starting. And a ton sprouted!!
LOL... I could not help but have a good laugh... I think from now on I will just get one of these machines that they have at the paint store - that shakes the can to mix the paint!!!! this way I can tell the seeds : you choose... either grow quick or I will shake you like a can of paint!
These guys were planted in January and are just coming up. Like I said, they take their own sweet time. They've been in the greenhouse the whole time with no bottom heat. I didn't soak the seeds either.
