What i like about Trumpets,plant them & forget them.they are so easy to care plants.same is the case with Gardenias,nargis,common red amaryllis.ah the evening fragrance of the trumpets.

Umar, use of Epsom salt (Magnesium sulfate) in low quantities in brugmansia has a very good effect on blooming and overall plant condition..

PS: the plants were couriered on Saturday, may reach you people today... kindly plant these in plain garden soil with no fertilizer and keep in semi shade until you can see the new growth, afterward you can treat it normally... they are water and nutrient hogs so keep adequate moisture and constant fertilization in very small quantities.. they may bloom in 2-4 months inshaAllah...

I found this 'brugmansia-like' plant growing wild in the out skirts of my university campus.
Could anybody tell what exactly is this thing ?



P.s It had off white trumpet like flowers, which btw were not fragrant at 3 pm. Pics attached.
Thank You.
