Angel's no toot...!


By Fluff

Dorset, United Kingdom Gb

I was given what she called an Angel's Trumpet' by a neighbour...lovely, home-grown plant with 3 fat, purple buds. I've watered it, put in on a light but not hot, sunny window sill & looked forward to the grand opening...but the largest bud in the picture has just gone brown & dropped orf!
Am I doing something it doesn't like...sorry I don't know it's proper name.




Its a Datura Fluff, the flowers are growing upwards, what a lovely plant, I wish i had a neighbour like yours :))) All i know is they dont like morning sun and to water twice a day..mine only have buds and i suspect its not warm enough up here, when the rain stops ill put them in the greenhouse and see what happens :)))

Hi Daisydee...thanks for that...maybe it's in the wrong place then...& I'll give it more water!

Flower buds often drop when a plant is moved from one environment to another. Try to put the plant in a bright place and don't forget to feed it tomato food.

Well could be right...the 2nd bud is opening fine tonight....& more are forming. It just didn't like being adopted! Thank you.
