Beautiful double bloom there, Tom! We keep getting downpours that last 10 minutes while it's bright and sunny! The humidity is the worst...stay cool!
Wow! That datura is fantastic. I have never grown those even though I've been given seeds because I heard they are very, very poisonous. I have a couple of dogs who sometimes let their curiosity (or appetite) get ahead of their judgment - almost lost one to some mushrooms once. Do you think the datura would grow well in a VERY large pot? If so, I could have them on my deck, which has a gate the dogs can't pass.Also, are you growing those in full sun?Thanks for info - Linda in SC
Humidity is down to 83%, but the clouds are rolling in. Linda, They should do fine in a 14" pot or larger. They don't seem to have a huge root ball. It is a weed, after all. I have some white datura in full sun, but the yellow is in mostly shade. They're doing fine though they did take a while longer to get some size to them. Mine get 3-4 hours of morning sun.
The bloom is impressive. I feel your pain with the heat. I went out on the deck last night after 8pm and it still felt like a sauna. 90% humidity is great.
