DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

How to grow Datura Inoxia

Seed Storage

Datura seeds are best kept in a cool dark place that is dry. Keeping them in a Brown paper bag in the refrigerator is a great way to store them. Datura seeds seem to be winter hardy as I have seen many germinate after winters that get below freezing.

Germination

Datura seeds germinate extremely easily. Simply put them in the dirt and keep them moist. They can be planted fairly deep but they tend to do better when they are in the first few centimeters of soil. Datura seeds do not have an incubation period so the moment they come out of the seed pod, they can germinate. This allows you to plant several plants in a single grow season.

General

I have found it is best to start them where you plan to keep them during the growing season. If they are started inside, it can stunt their growth. Although they do fairly well when transplanted, it takes a while for the root system to get established before it starts growing at its normal rate. Datura do best in full sun, and will grow very rapidly if they are fertilized and watered well. Mine grew up to at least a meter in one grow season, and they were in full sun and they often got miracle grow, bloom builder, Urea, and lots of water. In order to increase bloom and growth, I made sure I cut off the forming seed pods since the plant put a significant amount of its energy into developing the seeds instead of having it go to the leafs and flowers. P.S Datura seeds are self pollinating.

Harvesting the seeds

Since the seed pods form at different rates, they mature at different rates. This makes it really difficult to judge when to harvest them. I would check daily to see what pods had opened, and I would collect the seeds that were about to fall out, this way, I knew they were going to be viable. It is very difficult, if not impossible to collect all of the seeds, but if you have given the plants enough sunlight, and fertilizer you should acquire more seeds then you would ever want. I know I didn't even collect half of the seeds and I ended up with approximately 3 pounds.

Harvesting the roots

Assuming you are after the tropane alkaloids in it, you will want to dig the roots up at the end of the grow season. This is the time of year when the alkaloid content is the highest in the roots, and their is little in the leafs. This is because the plant is begging to enter dormancy. A simple Acid/Base Extraction will take out the various tropane alkaloids from the roots, leafs or the seeds.

Picture of Datura Inoxia growing

Here I have attached a picture of my Datura Inoxia plants, I believe there is only three plants in the planter box.
