After spending an eternity asking around for a belladonna plant (which is endemic in my country, but in few places), and finding nothing, I decided to grow it from seed. I'm not very good at this process, and I fear that it won't succeed. I even came across this information:
Germination requires several weeks in warm, moist, absolutely sterile soil, usually far from normal garden conditions.
Has anyone tried it? The seeds arrive in a few days, and the seller told me to plant them right away, and just keep the soil moist. I'd appreciate any tips, or detailed instructions, because I'm a starter at this!
Also, is it possible to germinate other plants like aconitum, actea, hyoscyamus and mandrake? Yes, I'm aware of their dangerous properties, but to me they're valuable and fascinating plants, and I wish to add them to my personal collection. But I just have no luck finding live plants-any advice is welcome!
