    Excellent video! However I have a problem with ants attacking my dragon fruit tree. What’s the answer for that?

    Those fruit are 8 dollar U.S. where I live in North carolina. I tried one they had marked down. I don’t think I could grow it in my climate either.

    I have 2 fruits starting to form at the same time on the tip of one branch. Do I let both develop or would it be better to only let 1?

  16. gardenlifelove on September 30, 2021 at 8:10 am

    Your dragon fruit looks emaculate man! I love watching all your other videos as well. You have alot of good advice, hand pollination should help and also cross pollination for some varieties.

    Thanks for instruction

    Thank you for sharing this video

  19. Sunshine on September 30, 2021 at 8:14 am

    Do we need to cut those old and bad stems?

  20. bell G on September 30, 2021 at 8:14 am

    I agree with you observation of the plant developing fruit when it hangs over a bit more or else it will continue to grow taller.

  21. Sunshine on September 30, 2021 at 8:14 am

    The dragon fruit flowers are so pretty in the morning when the sun just arise.

  22. Ana Afonso on September 30, 2021 at 8:15 am

    Just wanted to know if I can make cuttings from my 2year old plant but it has not started flowering yet

  23. Anthony Camacho on September 30, 2021 at 8:16 am

    Great video. Great tips to freeze the pollen and water more to get more fruit.

  24. Chef Cris TV on September 30, 2021 at 8:17 am

    Thanks for your tips, very clear and informative.

  25. Real Facts on September 30, 2021 at 8:19 am

    I had a dragon fruit in a large pot which I put in a place where it got at least 6 hours of sunlight, and yet it got scorched/burnt although I made sure the soil always had enough moisture balance. I had to move it to a shade because some of the stalks started to turn yellow. What was happening? Can you explain, please? Thank you in advance.

  26. awesometacular on September 30, 2021 at 8:19 am

    So the flowers only last one night. I did not know that.

  27. Atit thakor on September 30, 2021 at 8:20 am

    My flowers before it grows it burns out….

  28. Jennifer Hudson-Gensler on September 30, 2021 at 8:21 am

    My question is about heat. I live in Las Vegas, NV USA. We’re in the Mojave Desert where it can easily hit 120 degrees F in the summer and go below freezing a few nights during the winter. Not much grows here. I currently have five dragonfruit plants in the house, and they love it, but at some point they’ll get too big and need to go outside. Will they survive? Should I plant them where they get less direct sun to prevent them from burning? I really want these plants to do well, but I’m afraid for them. Help!

  32. gardenlifelove on September 30, 2021 at 8:22 am

    I’m going to experiment with growing dragon fruit in my living room under grow lights. Any ideas what the perfect growing temp is for it to grow at? I will just set my thermostat to just below that lol

  33. Alyssa’s Tropical Fruit Trees on September 30, 2021 at 8:25 am

    Your Dragon trees had lots of fruits 🤩👍

  34. gary peters on September 30, 2021 at 8:27 am

  38. Carol Smith on September 30, 2021 at 8:36 am

  39. JaniceTheMenace on September 30, 2021 at 8:36 am

    ‘Watch this plant like a whore"? …. huh. I’ll get my husband on that then.

  40. Leo Pruner on September 30, 2021 at 8:39 am

    My yard is full of dragon fruit but it doesn’t flower. How can help them to flower?

  41. Eddie Rios on September 30, 2021 at 8:39 am

    awsome video!!!

  42. ARIES SCORPION on September 30, 2021 at 8:40 am

    ive got them fully mature in canada 🙂

  43. Randy Nelson on September 30, 2021 at 8:41 am

    I have a dragon fruit that I started from seed ten years ago and finely this year it decided to produce fruit. I am looking forward to the fruit fully ripening. It is growing along a chain link fence and seems to be perfectly happy there.

  45. CapleJones Gozon on September 30, 2021 at 8:41 am

    It’s not a dragon fruit, it is a dragon flower. It is a food. Who says, it is not a good idea to eat flower, Bumblebee?
    Dragon flower is safe from diabetis… I can taste the nutrients, IMPORTANT matters to eat is the nutrients and economic jobs.

  47. Jenny Moss on September 30, 2021 at 8:42 am

    This has been so interesting. I’ve always wanted to try a dragon fruit, but I’ve never seen one. It would be great to grow one, but I live in the U.K. so not sure how easy it would be.

  48. lisa Doolam on September 30, 2021 at 8:43 am

    Thank you for the tips Mark really enjoyed this video. I have a question, what is the recommended height to grow the DragonFruit? I want to try growing a few myself so I’m just starting off.
