This variety has been carefully chosen for it's delicious slightly sweet, fresh fruits usually produced in the 2nd year on smaller than average sized plants.
Very low in calories but high in vitamins, especially vitamin C.
Also has high water soluble fibre content for healthy diet.
An interesting sub tropical plant which will tolerate mild frost.
Can be pot grown where temps drop to enable winter protection
It is important to note that Dragon Fruit is a sub-tropical plant & is NOT a desert cactus!
Scatter the tiny seeds onto a mix of fine potting soil mixed with peat moss or something to boost the water retention. Then cover the seeds with another fine covering of potting soil or soil & sand mixture. Be careful to keep the pot warm & damp but NOT wet! Try to maintain a steady temperature between 16ºc to 22ºc. Germination should take between 2 - 4 weeks.
Strangely the first 2 leaves look like typical succulent cotyledons. These are the only leaves that the plant will ever produce! the next growth will be the triangular shape stem which is the true growth habit of the plant. There will be small spikes at intervals on the stem.
Once the stems have 4 - 6 true leaves you can repot into individual pots.
Make sure to give them plenty of sunlight once they germinate to avoid the plants becoming spindly.
The plants sometimes put out Ariel roots & love to pull moisture from the environment they grow in.
Adding peat moss to the compost will help to encourage moisture retention & rapid growth. BUT do not be tempted to leave the sitting in wet compost..... they must be able to free drain!
