1 gal fruiting dragonfruit

Here's my 1 gal Phoenix Red Dragonfruit forming a flowerbud. I'm not a horticulturalist, but I think it depends on the maturity of the source of the cutting.

wow, that's awesome, pretty much every source i've read have said that it needs to be atleast 10 lbs of growth before flowering.

i've had mine in small pots, and under half shade the past 2 years, got lots of thin growth but no flowers yet. i'm in the process of slowly constructing 3 trellises out in the yard so they can get full sun.

Shawna, it would be best to root cuttings. I can give you some. I have around 9 varieties of dragonfruit. Contact me privately
