thanks for posting that picture! We recently moved our dragon fruit into the greenhouse to keep it dryer, and a couple of the plants looked really beat up. Now I can see that they'll probably do fine!

Steiconi, ya your plants should do just fine!! Have mine in the greenhouse to, and it's growing nicely. I noticed a lot of people complaining that when try planted their cuttings, it took months for it to show any sign if growth, well within 2 weeks of me planting my cuttings which I got from papa in the big island these new growth popped out and are growing fast!!

What variety of Dragon Fruit do you have? Is it the white flesh or the red?

mine have gone kinda crazy, doing their best to take over the greenhouse. Had one flower last week, waiting to see if that's a fruit developing!

Randg: There are dozens of different varieties available; I think I acquired at least 4 different ones, but don't know what I have now.

In the beginning, my plants only have about 4-5 flowers. But they dried out, and recently 8-10 more just started popping out.
