Sorry not right now.I am still waiting for more vegetation from all my plants still.My plants are still really young.I can't wait till they have all yielded maximum growth to start pushing out more flowers so they can fruit.I only had one white flesh fruit last year.I hope that this season I see more than 1 tasty delicious dragonfruit.

All of mine have rooted so far except for my yellow dragon fruit. I hope that one survives because it's one of the cuttings I want to keep!

I managed to collect 5 more types of dragon fruits today
The ones i'm sure about are Cosmic Charlie, Zamorano, Vodoo Child and Darkstar.
The dude I got them from originally purchased them from pine island and has a pretty nice setup. He called one of the cuttings Tropical beauty and the other one simply white flesh, i'm not sure about these so ill just have to call him back to confirm. Anyhow here are some pics.

These little bumps were on my neighbor's red dragon fruit plants. I don't know if they will be branches or blooms. They seem to attract ants, too.

Those little bumps are blooms and hopefully fruit. I wonder if that type of DF is self fertile or cross polinate.I wish your neighbor the best.If you by chance get to eat one let us know how it was.

Hey guys, I found Halley's Comet at HD for only $4. The tag says its like $6.98 though which I feel that is cheap enough already lol. I haven't checked in a long time but I came across this thread trying to look for more info on this variety. Can I plant this in full sun here in the the inland valleys? Also wanted to know just how good and sweet is this particular variety. I hope this will be a huge improvement from the white-flesh varieties found at the Asian supermarkets here...

musaboru, Halley's Comet should do fine in full sun. It's grown in full sun at the research station in Irvine. It might get some sunburn but you can also always using a calcium based product to spray on the plant to reduce sunburn. It was my favorite tasting variety at the 2011 Pitahaya Festival but I don't know how fresh the fruit at the event was or if they were all mature.

Thanks very much for the info Harvey. Glad you told me about the spray, I could use this for many other plants too that according to the tag "can take full sun". The sun here is just too harsh especially with the low humidity...

I'm not sure if you have a local source for commercial products such as Surround or PurShade, but I think you can probably make a suitable homemade spray from using gypsum and adding enough water to make a spray with viscosity similar to paint diluted with 50% water.

You could have Surround shipped, but I don't know if it would be worth it when you factor in the cost of shipping:

Well I have some bad news guy's.The new DF flower you see in this pic has died.If you can see in the pic it was starting to turn yellow.As it continued to grow it was turning more yellow and fell off the branch.Can anyone tell me why this may have happened.To much water or fertilizer or ?
