Brugmansia-poor growth


By Meanie

I have a 3 year old Brugmansia which to be honest is pathetic!It is no more than 18" high with 6 leaves at the top.
In desperation tonight I've just put it into a 15" pot.
Does anyone have any advice, as I'm thinking that maybe it's time to execute it & go back to growing Daturas as annuals again (which were always very good to me,10 flowers on a plant by mid August).



They are such greedy root feeders and need to be grown fast in good conditions ie warmth. I think you have probably done the best thing by giving it a bigger pot. Lets just hope for a good summer! :-)

Thank you Fractal.
I don't suppose that you could help me with a Datura question could you?I can't remember the name of the Datura that I used to grow-it was pure white with single flowers,typically 3 to 4 inches across.I've found seeds for the larger flowered one,but not this one.Obviously,not knowing its' name doesn't help!
