Wow, Tony, looks like a strong bud for a cutting that hasn't put on any visible growth yet. You must at least have some good roots going. My flower bud dropped off when I planted it in the ground.

Yes, Jack that you/we got it from only had this one variety growing and he described it as self-fertile. I don't know if he assisted in pollination or not, but that would be affected by what wildlife might be present to help out.

I've got a total of about 10 buds so far on 3 plants. Hope they all set fruit and hope I get even more flowers!

8-S, Physical Graffiti, and Condor

I'm hoping to maybe get flowers on a couple of others as well.

Some of my Dragon Fruit plants have the fungus or whatever it is. You know it's the brown spot kind of thing. Any ideals guys? I'm kind of rethinking attempting to grow this stuff here.

Dean I water twice a week. I think Richard suggested Copper Sulfate for the fungus.

Just noticed today that I have a blossom started. Was getting ready to give up as a lot of plant has turned orange/rust colored. Thanks Sunfish for the reminder to give it copper sulfate - which I have. I'll have to climb up on a stepstoole to figure out if it's red Jaina or yellow. Woohoo
I remember reading that they seem to bloom on full moon evenings. Last yr the flower bloomed on full moon. The next full moon is the 13th & I won't be here to pollinate... I'll have to get a neighbor over to do it.
