Q: What pH does Brugmansia like best?

Brugmansia are members of the Potato Family (Solanaceae). In general plants in this family like slightly acidic soils of about pH 6.0. They will grow fine between pH 5.5 to pH 7.0. They are heavy feeders – an application of a balanced, all-purpose organic fertilizer will get them off to a good start. In the garden, they can be supplemented with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
