Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Xeramtheum On Jan 20, 2006, Xeramtheum from Summerville, SC (Zone 8a) wrote:

Starting this from seed was aggravating because datura likes to take their sweet time sprouting. Once sprouted, it shot up like a rocket. I find they do best with a sphagnum/perlite, moldering grass/leaf compost mix. The flowers are stunning, especially the doubles.
