Germination of

Datura innoxia

Moonflower - Devil's Trumpet, Thorn Apple, Indian Apple

Datura innoxia

Datura innoxia, also known as angel's trumpet, is a tropical plant native to the Americas. The seeds of Datura innoxia should be sown in a well-draining soil mix and covered lightly with a fine layer of soil. The soil should be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged, and the seeds should be exposed to bright, indirect light. Germination can be slow and erratic, with some seeds taking several weeks or even months to germinate. It's important to be patient and continue to care for the seeds until they sprout.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
