HAVE: Callisia Fragrans, Red Dragon Fruit

I would like to trade for Plumeria, Epi, or a rooted brugmansia cutting (any flower color except white or purple). I live in MN so exchanges will have to be made after late April/earlyMay. Thanks, Alison

Hi, Alison.
I would love to have your red dragon fruit. Can you give me an idea of its size? What is the fruit like? I have numerous plumeria in my yard and would be willing to trade several cuttings with you. They aren't hard to root over the summer even for someone in MN. Let me know if you are interested.

I should have specified in my "HAVE" post that the Dragon Fruit is of a red fleshed variety, although I have not confirmed that with fruit. The cuttings are small about 3 or 4 inches (I live in MN so it's slow growing for much of the year).

Please excuse the confusion. I have Hylocereus (Dragon Fruit) AND Callisia Fragrans (Basket Plant) for trade. Basket Plant can be invasive if not controlled by freezing temps.

I have either an Hylocereus or Selenicereus to trade it has 3 sides but the flower looks like an epi. I also have what is probably a form of Callisia Fragrans if you want I can take pictures & see if our varieties are different.
