7 R a s a S h a s t r a Copyright © 2011 Neterapublishing Dhattura Preparation The distinctive flowing trumpet of the Datura stromonium variety. If the trumpet points toward the skies it signifies a devil’s trumpet, a downward direction indicates an angel’s trumpet. The scent from this plant is amazingly rich and intoxicating. After only 2 days of flowering its trumpet will detach and hang by a thread, allowing a seed pod to mature in its place.

If extra pressure is required place the seed on a hard work surface and press downward against it. The image opposite shows Jayapala free of its outer casing. Caution: Gloves are generally worn when handling Jayapala due to croton oil being exuded from the shelled seed.
