First time grower of daturas and I tried Double Golden Queen. The first seed popped up in 14 days....then 6 weeks later, 4 more seeds came up. One of these came up at the base of the big, first plant. Well, what a dilemma! The soil was full to the surface of roots and it was hard to remove the tiny seedling of the new plant. Very carefully (with a steak-knife!!) I tried to pry the tiny plant out. I ended up ripping off the little tap-root. Shoot! I mean, the plant only had it's first two leaves, I really felt it was game over. However, I carefully placed it into a little hole and put it under artificial light. Hey, the new energy-saving lights are great! 100 watts and no heat!
The plant sat there for a good week and looked like it was just going to turn yellow and die. Then, it picked it's little head up and drove new roots into the ground. Man, these plants grow some serious roots!!! And today, I moved it into a larger pot with a rich soil mix full of manure. I hope that's good for 'em.
Cheers, Matthew

I was given some seeds from this plant and I must say that it is the most beautiful flower I have seen- ugly leaves and not the best aroma - BUT- I will continue to plant my seeds and wait anxiously for the flowers to arrive.
