seedling & plant

I tried to grow Datura from seed this year but only got one seedling. It is taking forever to gain any size. I noticed today, however, that there are actually two seedlings growing right on top of each other. Maybe that's why it's so slow - they're robbing nutrients from each other. There was no separating them so I weeded out one. What a shame.

By contrast, the Datura root I bought last year is about to flower. In the photo, my Datura seedling is on the left and the opening flower of my  Datura plant is on the right.
