50 Jimson Weed seeds, Datura stramonium, USDA Organic
Self-seeding annual native to North America, currently distributed worldwide. Flowers light blue or white on a purple stem. Direct seed in warm, sunny location, or start in greenhouse in flats or pots. Plant prefers full sun and all soils. Plant in warm soil, keep moist, and if germination does not occur within a week or two, allow the flat to dry out for two weeks then resume watering, which often spurs germination. The seeds are very wild, and can remain in the seed bank for many years and germinate when conditions are right (sunlight, dry and warm). Space plants three feet apart; 40 days to flower.
Traditional usage: motion sickness, asthma, and rheumatic and glandular swelling. All parts of the plant contain toxic atropine–leaf, root, flower and seed.
