We seriously have like a hive worth of bees that come to the datura every evening when the flowers start to open. Wonder who's eating that honey  :o

 solanaceous honey sounds deliriously delicious (or deliciously delirious) to me... would make for some interesting experiments but idk if a)pollen collected by bees would contain the medicinal/toxic compounds, b)if the honey does contain such medicinal/toxic tropane alkaloids (and if so, then what would the average concentration be?), and c) if I would have balls big enough to dive that deep into 4 days of tropane-induced hell

I agree completely. Part of me, the morbid masochistic part wants to try it; the other, intelligent part is terrified at the very thought. Never tried tropanes, but the experiences sound both interesting and terrifying from my reading.

my  largest    T. Pachanoi  bloomed  this week  the honey bees have been all over the blooms .

if the bees made honey with just these flowers  would be  interesting .

on side note  I was spritzed  this cactus would bloom raised in a  pot .

anyway the bees loved it.
