Belladonna Transplant issues
    #3949631 - 03/21/05 05:27 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Last fall, when we moved into this house, I found belladonna growing in the back yard. A little over a month ago, I put in the flower beds on that end of the yard. I transplanted the belladonna to one area (one of them was already growing there...), but now I'm seeing nothing!!! I don't know if it's because the plant is still dormant for winter, or if I made a big mistake in moving them.

Help? anyone experienced with belladonna?

I've found that generally they don't like being transplanted at all so I leave them in the container that I germinate them.

There could be a number of reasons they aren't there. Try and find the rootstock, if it still looks healthy it might regrow. I'm not entirely sure but I know that henbane can be regrown from the root so give it a go.

Do you collect your seeds? Or purchase?

I purchased them but they haven't set seed yet.

Once they do though I plan to work with this plant more. The nightshade family is something that interests me alot and I grow quite a few different species. I also collect the seeds to germinate and grow in the wild. I mean, there's nothing like coming across an entire field of datura's in full flower :laugh:

I haven't found belladonna to be fussy about transplanting, but I could just be lucky...
And I actually found that cuttings from fresh shoots root easily, even in tap water, though it can take a while. 8" or so of fresh growth should root fine.
Mine have just started to poke their heads above soil after winter :smile2:.

Good luck with them!

Well... it looks like all three plants died in the transplanting.  I'm going to start the seeds soon.  Hopefully they'll go strong!  :smile:

in holland belladonna grows in the wild.
in the winter it dies of completele and comes back in summer.
my mom has one in front of her house that hasnt shown any life yet either.
it might be to soon to write off your transplanted plants.

Belladonna is a survivor.
If you break off a piece of root and put it in the ground it will grow from there. Its a very hardy perennial, indeed the aboveground part dies but not even biting frost keeps it from coming up stronger the next year.

Belladonna tends to establish itself over three years, by then it is a massive bush, far wider than high. If you are an educated herbalist and like a quality hyoscyamine herb in your garden for apothecary purposes, Belladonna is the way to go.

If you cut off a big branch it will root, as well as a sprout will.

YEAR 1....Belladonna drives a root system deep into the ground to protect it from frost at the expense of the size of the aboveground plant and number and size of the cherries.

YEAR 2....Belladonna aggressively pushes outward above and below the ground to firmy establish itself and starts to really set cherries.

YEAR 3....By this time the Belladonna is massive, it's roots could fill a bucket, some cherries can be an inch across and it will try to occupy 10x10ft ground space, seeding it to produce a crowded patch of competetive Belladonna plants.

If you want success with your Belladonna you got to put lime in the ground, even some clay cat litter pellets will work miracles for size, growth and alkaloid content.


Warning: In countries where Belladonna grows wild, even where it is rare, it is one of the major causes of serious herbal intoxication. The cherries are tempting, tasty and highly toxic. Do not grow Belladonna on places accessible to uninstructed kids. A yummy minute can and will be lethal. Do not use it recreationally, especially not in "recreational doses" as seen online, even at places like Erowid. It is not a recreational drug: it is a highly poisonous medicinal plant that may cause toxic delirium as part of poisoning with acutely dangerous doses.
