1. Fill the planting flat with potting soil. Moisten the soil, but make sure it is still loose. Keep the soil at the same moisture level until the seeds sprout.
2. Plant the Datura seeds in the planting flat just under the surface, about an eighth of an inch deep. Pat the soil lightly with the palm of your hand after planting the seeds.
3. Place the flat in a warm spot until the seeds germinate. They will germinate in two to four weeks. Once the seedlings sprout, place them in a location with natural light or direct sun. They will do best over the winter if they are not over watered.
