  • Neat! I'd heard the cactus only flowered at night ... good to know maybe they are adapting to our conditions and flowering more in the day when the bees are about.

  • No we haven't hand pollinated, we keep bees and they plus the small native bees always seems to be around them when they are flowering.

  • Thanks Shirley-Allison ... good news :-) Did you hand pollinate? I'v heard that it can work well.

  • Hi Elaine, I'm not 100% sure on that but I would say we were eating fruit by eighteen months, they seem to grow very easily here.  This year we did have a problem when they flowered and it poured with rain so many of them didn't pollinate.

  • Superb! How long did your Dragon Fruit take to fruit from the time you planted the rooted cutting?
