This is my first experience with Devil's Trumpet, I am already a big fan of Angel Trumpet. I recently was given a seed pod of a double(hose in hose) purple devil I sowed them into a trough of potting mix and ended up with 13 little plants in two weeks! I am not a fan of thinning so I moved them to their own little pots and they are (excuse the expression) growing like weeds. They grow noticeably overnight and I have promised a few to neighbors. I can't wait to see them bloom!
