@sunlovin That would be exciting. I've never tried the fruit before😋

This one is supposed to be self pollinating so maybe you have a chance for fruit. If it is the variety you posted. Don’t take the flower off. 🤔🌞

A few months back I had to remove this from a rotten tree that fell over. I used twine and attached to a pine tree and there is finally new growth🌵🌵🌵 #newgrowth

Is dragon fruit cactus an epiphyte then, or does it just need an incredibly strong trellis?

comment
cowdenkyle

@emch just something strong enough to climb. It has lots of roots that attach to the tree, but it gets its nutrients from the soil😀
