I will probably be keeping four of them (Physical Graffiti, H. guatemalensis/American Beauty, H. megalanthus, and H. ocamponis). I might be able to train them to climb up an overhang in our backyard that gets full sun if my dad lets me. Also, would they be able to climb on a wall? Also, I could just as easily make a little trellis system.

Two of my cuttings are already putting out new shoots: H. ocamponis and American Beauty.

American Beauty



H. ocamponis



To me the shoot coming off of the H. ocamponis cutting looks more like a flower bud forming.

I would suggest not having them climb on the home's wall as they might damage it (forcing roots into cracks, etc.).

Is it right that you're only 79F now???

It is, the weather has been mild lately. Just a few days ago it was over 90 degrees.

By the way, there was a Federal rule published a couple of months ago that will be permitting pitaya from Central America to be imported into the USA. Some U.S. growers worry that this will result in lower prices. It will be interesting to see what the quality of imported fruit will be like.

Our plants are growing slowly, those not being used for cuttings, and we hope to see a bloom sometime this fall. Wish us luck. Intend to leave in pots and protect this winter but will have many in the ground which will get protection also. There are times I wish we were growing rocks instead. Not as tasty but a whole lot less labor.

Yes, that's a flower bud. You might want to ask Richard if that species is self-fertile.

Would I want to cut off the flower bud since it's on a cutting? I'm not sure if the cutting would be able to support a flower, and it's still in the process of rooting.

The bud won't hurt anything. If the plant can't support it the bud will drop
