Hello all.
I have a plant thats grew as a weed in one of my pot. It looks nice to me. So i let it to grow. Today a white flower blooms on this plant. I was very happy to see the flower. It is very pretty. Then i searched on net about this flower. I found this is a datura, actually Datura Inoxia. Now i know it a poisonous plant.
Now can you please tell me is it safe to keep it at home or i should took it away. ? Anyone else has this plant or any other plant that is poisonous.

Amit, this plant is poisonous. It is used in traditional medicine, but nevertheless poisonous. Isolate this plant.

Hmmm. But is there any special instructions while dealing with a plant like that. Or it is just simply plucking it off and throw it away.

Hi AmitChugh,

This is a  poisonous plant as well as a fragrant plant. If you do have children at home - it is better not to have it. But if you like to grow this plant. Place the plant some where which is out of reach by your children. When you do any repotting plz use gloves as everypart of the plant has poison.

Cheers,

BMB Albert
