#Upclose shot of my #dragonfruit #cactus Either from the #rain or #greenhouse, but it's growing little #roots everywhere They are even coming out of the #soil It only has a 2 arms, but is it preparing for cuttings or are they #grow ing for some other reason? I was told other roots weren't bad. Is it still a good thing? It's a little overwatered because of the #rain It was covered after 1 day and put in the greenhouse 2 days later. It seems to like it. #container #succulents #grow #patiogarden

They are epiphytes. Those arial roots are looking for something to attach to.

Sincere apologies if you absolutely hate his voice - I was raised on the old NPR Car Talk, so it has nostalgic hooks in mah brain >_< his botany is good tho!

Did these little guys get too much #water in the #rain or is the #newgrowth supposed to be that color!? What can I do to save them if they did get too much? 🔴 #Help #advice please!! 🔴 I really want this #DragonFruit #cactus to do well 💚🌵 #plant #plants #cacti #succulent #succulents

@cyndi thank you for the tag. Super useful! I just remembered I have a photo further down my page, from about a week ago, to compare, from when I first got it from the nursery.

Looks like a bit to much water just keep an eye on it. Should be fine.

Thank you @cyndi !! The rain got to it. Greenhouse isn't coming until Monday. It'll be raining all week, so I'll be setting it up in the rain. I have a temporary solution now that I was able to set up in-between rains. Do you think there is any way to prevent root rot without repotting it or should I not worry about it, yet?

If you just let it dry out some it should be ok.. just keep eye on it. Try to let it no longer get wet for now. A tarp,umbrella even a yard shade umbrella the porch(if you have one) any where temp that can make sure it survives... but these do grow outside in the ground so make sure it does drain well because it is a cactus lol

I know it's dragon fruit, but I could use a #plantid for if the roots and browning on the actual plant are okay.

It was too dark last night to take photos and technically too bright today (it's my party, I can sleep in if I wanna 😆🎂) but I got the pictures anyway. Here's my first #birthday gift from the #nursery from my bf. A #dragonfruit #cactus I always wanted one! It was the only one. It was tucked away. It's a miracle I found it! Hopefully he will be fruitful! I should name him! Picture of the 2nd #plant, #RescuePlant and #cuttings / #clones #plants to come #apartmentgarden #apartmentgardening
