Datura Metel
    #8802602 - 08/20/08 09:52 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

my D.metel seed pods arent popping...

anyone with metel(specifically) growing experience had this problem.

she gets ferts, and grows like a weed.

she had 12 pods on her right now, some are pretty old even.

ive cut 2 good sized pods off of her, one was then cut open to dry the seeds, and the other was given to a friend whole.

anyway, opinions on this would be GREATLY apreciated!

So long as they are a nice dark tannish yellow and look fully formed they should be ok. When I grew D.metel they didn't do that as much as the D.inoxia it seems like. I mean a pepper (same family) doesn't have to go that far for its seeds to be viable. I think when its popped you know that they are good to go for sure, but that's just a touch too long.

just go ahead and do it...
if the seed pods are fully formed then the seeds should be ok to dry...

alternatively: why not wait until the pods dry on the plant and crack slightly, exercise some patience, ya know what i mean :tongue2:

Yeah,I've grown datura for years,and through much experience with them,I've learned that you need to let them fully ripen on the plant.If you cut them before they ripen,the seeds wont be viable.The pods will start to turn brown,and split open,and be full of tiny black seeds,and as long as you don't get a strong wind,the seeds will stay in the pod.I just harvested a bunch of seeds from one of mine,and I wish I had a picture of it,so You'll know what to look for.MOD EDIT: please read the ethno garden rules trades are not allowed here

HAHAHA, dam uare, you tripped me out mang

i didnt realize you were talkin to KGB.

and KGB, PM me mang.




SIDE NOTE:

toady i went out and was lookin at the pods, and the VERY oldest one out there, i went to cut it off, and when i grabbed the pod, it mushed in my hand.

so i knew it was ready, i cut if off, and extracted 35 nice light brown seeds out of it.

so patience pays, but these aparently take longer, and are tougher than most datura.
