Dragonfruit is pollinated by a moth, but can also be hand pollinated. You can check on YouTube how to hand pollinate your dragon fruit flower. You have to catch it blooming, I know that much. I have one about ready to bloom any day now, so I'm going to lose sleep until it blossoms. Blossoms at midnight and stays bloomed for about five hours, then it dies. The bloom is huge and magnificent! It's worth losing a little bit of sleep to see it!

I planted a couple in October, about 2 feet tall, now in February they are over 5 feet tall and sprouting babies like crazy. How long before they bloom and one of them has an entire 6 foot "stalk" completely covered, every thorn sprout is developing into a actual arm, can I safely eliminate any of them? Thank you, all info appreciated

Why some vines produce yellow baby flower and some are not.In flowering process do we need to water the cactus every day or what are the reguirement and fertilizer to produce more fruit to prolong developing fruits.

I started a dragonfruit this spring from a short piece use beneath one of those weird red or yellow ball cactus grafted ones sold around Christmas. It has grown to about 8 inches. I don't know what color the fruit is yet but it is an amazing cactus. Walmart carries them all year.

They can't take freezing, so you'll need to protect it for about half of the year in Vancouver. Lots of sun if you can. You are kinda in their opposite preferred climate. Ours fruit on any year old (or more) stalks. Best of luck!

Hi there I live in Vancouver BC and I recently got myself a dragonfruit plant only about 15 inches tall, does anyone have any tips or suggestions on growing these funky plants in my climate and also wondering how long before they actually bear fruit? Thanks for any and all help!

Thank you. This is wonderful information. I also got my plants at a market in Western Australia and after a 2 years of getting the spikes grabbing me when I get too close it has produced a flower bud..only one so perhaps I won't get a fruit but it is fun watching this bud grow larger every day. If anyone in Perth's Northern suburbs has a flower that I can collect pollen from please let me know. I am happy to share a cutting or two.
