I enjoy gardening in my wonderful South Florida garden😷
And this morning it is already dying off. Crazy it only lasts 1 night. Last pic of it I swear😊 #dragonfruitcactus #nightbloomer
Now hopefully you’ll get some fruit. 😁🌞
@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. 🤔🌞
Oh no, what a shame 😳
The center of this beautiful bloom😃 #dragonfruitcactus #nightbloomer
A side view😃 #dragonfruitcactus #nightbloomer
Wow! Fantastic photo!
@gjones Thank you😃Had to use the flash on my cellphone camera.
This was last night around 11pm😱I was so excited to see it open. It was so big and beautiful. Only my second flower ever😃 #dragonfruitcactus #nightbloomer
Gorgeous but it sure would be nice if the blooms lasted longer!
@gjones @Mimi58 Thank you both😃It would be awesome if it lasted just a little longer.
This was yesterday afternoon #dragonfruitcactus
This flower should bloom in the next few nights😃 #anticipation #nightbloomer #dragonfruitcactus
I have been wanting one of these! 😍 So excited for you!!!
Can wait to see it as the bud is huge!
Super easy to grow from seed @rosechilders101. Ive grown them from the ones they sell at the grocery store. I would be happy to send u some seeds if u wanna try and grow some.
@rosechilders101 @gjones @txgardener This is only the second flower bud I have had. A family friend gave me a cutting a couple years ago and it has grown like mad😊
I have one i bought a couple years ago that was a cutting. Mine hasnt bloomed for me yet. It must be happy with your care. 😊
@txgardener Poor thing has even had to be transplanted because the original tree it was attached to rotted and had to be removed🤣
Well looks like it still loves ya. lol
@txgardener that is so nice of you to offer! I won't say no!!
Sure Thing @rosechilders101 heres my email address email@example.com
Another fast growing flower bud😃 #dragonfruitcactus #nightbloomer
I hope mine bloom this year
@anitagipsongreenwell It's taken a good 2 years to finally bloom. I've only had 1 flower so far😃
Climbing and attaching to the Pine tree. It's a good 7 feet high now😃 #dragonfruitcactus
That’s amazing - glad you posted this photo!

Just as long as they don't get in your pants 👖🐜🐜
The ants are enjoying this flower bud today😃 #dragonfruitcactus #ants
Does anyone know if this is the start of a fruit or a flower bud? It looks like it's blowing a kiss😘 #dragonfruitcactus
Idk..but, that's pretty amazing😁photo
@crabby58 Thanks Thelma😊Hoping for a pretty flower🤞
Definitely looks like a flower bud. How exciting! How long have you had your plant? @cowdenkyle
@rudester1 Very exciting😃I was given a small piece about 2 years ago from a friend.
Seems to be enjoying the pine tree🌵 #dragonfruitcactus
Milkweed Assassin Bug #wildlifewednesday
Oh no, one to squish then 😳💚💚
@midnightgardener They are actually beneficial because they eat other bugs and pests in the garden🐜 So no squishing for this one😆
@cowdenkyle Ah, I see what you mean. Yes, silly me, he's the sas of bug world 💚💚😃
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?
@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😀
