I purchased a grafted moon cactus. The moon died, but the hylocereus lived. I am trying to guess what variety it is. I compared it to my Physical Graffiti, Selenicereus megalanthus, and Delight. This plant looks different, so I ruled those out. A document that I read said white-fleshed pitaya have 3 to 5 spines per areole. Mine has 2 to 3 spines, so I don't think it will be white flesh. Many of the polyrhisus varieties that have not been hybridized seem to be less undulated and the areoles seem to be closer together than mine. The Guatemalensis and Sin Espinas varieties seem to be more undulated and have less spines than mine. I am leaning towards Halley's Comet.

What variety do you think this might be? The pictures are of the same plant. The first picture was taken a few months ago.

I doubt that the ornamental plant industry would use an expensive hybrid such as Haley's Comet for grafting. You could also consider the genus Cereus. There are 11 known unique species in Hylocereus, 9 in Cereus, and 8 in Selinicereus. Selenicereus megalanthus has been genetically reclassified as a synonym of Hylocereus megalanthus.

Several of my DF branches are not as dark green as before (last year). What nutrients are they lacking?
Thanks,

I work (volunteer) at a local food bank who receives donations from several of the local markets in the area. Recently we received a donation of some dragon fruits from a local area market. I never considered even trying these fruits as they are very expensive, however i decided to try one of the donated fruits...what a delicacy! Sweet, yet tart, tiny seeds which are palatable without any thought...i really loved this fruit.....it proves to me, that you never know what you will love, until you try it...the cost at the markets is very much on the high side. i may try growing this baby in my own garden.

That cebra looks just like the yellow fruits, but with the pink colour still. Looks quite spikey too!

They are very easy to grow, and will taste much better than the one you tried I'm sure of it. Just make sure you support it well cause they grow fast.
for your first, may I suggest American beauty (purple)

Cebra is not spikey at all, no thorns on the fruit what so ever. The fins are flexible.
