Single cutting for sale which measures 10" tall and 5" wide Whether you have a green thumb or a black thumb...it is easy to grow dragonfruit. Also known as pitaya, dragonfruit is a hemi-epiphytic cactus that produces large and tasty fruits with neon pink skin and a surprising white flesh that's peppered with tiny black seeds. The patient gardener will one day be rewarded with a fruit bearing plant of her own! Most pitaya begins life as a cutting (this is what is being sold here). Photos with flowers are for illustration of what a well established plant will develop. dragon fruit can grow just fine in containers. If you do use a container, use one that's 15" to a 24" in diameter, and at least 10"+ deep, fitted with a climbing pole. However, the plant will likely eventually grow to a point that it needs a bigger pot, so be prepared to transplant it when that happens. If your plant is going to be outside (whether it's in a container or not), choose a place that's at least partly sunny. The roots can be in the shade, but the tips of the plant need to be in the sun to bloom. If you live in a warm area with a long, warm growing season, this plant could sustain being outside. They can generally handle a very light frost, but that's it. If your area has a decent winter, bring it inside.
