Hello, everyone, I have an annual datura seedling, one of the double yellow ones. It's sick. The leaves are a pale green, with garner green steaks in them. Is this a nutrition issue? I'll post a pic if this will help.

The one I have never gets much darker than that. It is getting a late start this spring, but it always gets about four or five feet tall before the end of summer.
If it takes a long time to grow, remember that if nobody plants it, nobody has it.

Ok, Thanks! I was thinking it was a nutritional deficiency. The poor little thing has had a hard life already, it's been through two very fierce storms. BTW, full sun, or is part sun ok? Mine gets half day of sun. Since it's in a pot, it can be moved if it needs more sun.

I give mine full sun. Some roses shaded it some last year, and it got puny. I have moved it this spring, and it is perking up again. Mine does better when I give it some fertilizer. It seems to need more than mulch.

Thank you, that's what I was thinking. I'm going to move it out where it can get full sun. And give it a shot of fertilizer. Thumbs up
