Caring for Solanum xanthocarpum

  • Watch for the datura seed pods to turn brown on the plant. They will open, revealing ripe seeds.
  • Although the description of the pods varies slightly among the species, they all have spikes or thorns and turn from green to brown as they mature. Collect the seeds.
  • Scrape or nick the seeds with a knife. This is called scarification. It helps germination by penetrating the protective outer layer of seeds.
