Datura Metel indoors
    #2883677 - 07/12/04 09:57 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hi

I have a datura metel seedling wich is about 2 cm now in a small pot. I was wondering if datura does a good indoor plant? i was hoping to have it near my bedroom window as I wish to have this particular plant near where i sleep. How much light does datura demands?

It's a great plant for indoors man. I've had mine for a few months, putting it near a window and it grows hardy. Doesn't require much light, just put it near a window.

It is easily grown indoors although I have had much better luck outdoors. Do you still have it on a heating pad (if ever)? I water mine once a day and fertilize once a week. They are always documented as being very heat and draught resistant but this simply isn't the case in my experience.

I havent used a heating pad since it was summer when i planted the seed. but i had a low germination rate 1 of 4 seeds came.

How tall does this plant get? I want to grow other Daturas together with metel. Wich ones should I look for, I have no plan to ingest any part of the plants I just want to keep them around me so alkaloid content is not so important as look, I want some that looks good together with Metel in size and color :smile:

Well I have seen metel that grew 6'-7' tall. The key is regular feeding and watering. The botanical garden that had these fertilized them once a day with week dilution of 20-20-20. The pods were as big as my fist. Other plants that look amazing with metel are Egg plant, Castor bean, Purple "Ruby moon" hyacinth vines, and innoxia. I have a very themed garden where metel as the main feature.

If your seeds are old they will have a low germination rate. If you are in need for some fresh ones , PM me and we can work out a trade.

Wow, 6 to 7 feet?! Mine is only about 12"-14" tall and the seedpod is about the size of a bouncing ball. I just planted some innoxia and stramonium to go along with it, they'll probably sprout soon. Good luck with your plants. Btw A'neglakya, you're avatar trips me the fuck out dude.

Thank you very much for the kind offer but its ok, i have access to the seeds I need :smile:

I have eggplants already, they are everywhere in my garden. I really enjoy this plant. I`m reading about hyacinth vines and innoxia now. Both very interesting. Thank you again :smile:

Did you see my other post? Brujo's garden? The innoxia and eggplant go VERY well together. I also show off my metel there and there are some breath takign pics of the flowers. I wish I could have all of you guys over for a BBQ session. We could smoke cigars and walk through my garden as we discuss the history of the plants. Oh well, maybe I will dream of this tonight.

Yes, now I have seen them. An awesome sight. :thumbup:

A walk in your garden with good conversation is something worth dreaming about. But I would have to bring some vegan food that BBQ  :shocked: :smirk:
