How to Grow Dragonfruit Part 3: Inducing Flowering

How to Grow Dragonfruit Part 3: Inducing Flowering

It’s been almost a year since I planted my dragonfruit cuttings, and they’ve grow to epic proportions…but I have no dragonfruit flowers at all. In an effort to induce flowering, today’s video covers a few tips and techniques to see if we can get a couple of flowers and actual fruit before the season starts to wind down!

Also known as pitahaya or pitaya, this is an incredible cactus that grows vigorously and produces an absolutely delicious, nutritious, and refreshing fruit.

    Many thanks, I have been researching "how to enter flow state while studying" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Fiylianaton Glorious Framework – (search on google ) ? It is a good exclusive guide for discovering how to hack your flow state and succeed without the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my neighbour got amazing results with it.

    I have 16 varieties of df in my garden including 2 yellow varieties. I cut the tip of each branch to induce fruiting or branching. I have a small gardening channel, pls visit my channel too. Thnks.

  7. Srboljub Gavrilovic on May 19, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    is it normal to grow even more cactuses from one dragon fruit cactus and should they have some weird thorns at cactus?

  8. Angela S on May 19, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Oh my god man buy some gloves!

  17. P N on May 19, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    when the get tip gets to that far curving down, it’s about to flower soon.
    when you cut bottom part off, you might want to cut the wedges of the wings, to increase surface areas there.

  18. Erik Iacopelli on May 19, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Was wondering if u could help me. I got a dragon fruit a couple of yrs ago and its skinny n tons of it coming outta the ground. And it’s never had flowers or fruits. But I see u n everyone else have one coming outta the ground n growing upwards. Should I cut most of it off and leave one or wat do I do??

  22. greyman003 on May 19, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    I have had two dragon fruit plants in small pots for many years. They have not been looked after yet still gave us one or two fruit per year.
    I have followed your advice and the next day massive change. Multiple buds that are now flowers.
    Who would have thought pruning and fertiliser would help so much.
    I now have multiple plants growing throughout my garden. They are in large pots with quality soil and fertiliser. Already the cuttings are showing growth.
    Thank you for your videos.

    Regards from Brisbane, Australia.

  31. Emy Abara on May 19, 2022 at 8:25 pm

  32. Agri Idea on May 19, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    New Bud

  33. Karin Oshea on May 19, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Thank you so much for this series! I bought three little dragon fruits from Baker Creek seeds a couple of years ago and have had them planted in red solo cups since. <facepalm>. The largest one is several feet long, but only the size of my thumb thick. I’ll be potting them up properly asap, I promise, now that I know what to do. New sub, five vids into a massive binge fest. Much love from Oklahoma!

  34. Penny O'Flaherty on May 19, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Fantastic cultivating there — it has inspired me enough to pull out the * Green Thumb * & give this all a try🤓

  35. Rainbow Obsidian on May 19, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I like the fact that you grow in a little space. I only have a little space too and have always wanted to do dragonfruit, so its a real encouragement. I watch self sufficient me and a few other channels, but their spaces are huge in comparison so doing a lot of the stuff just isn’t viable.

  36. JoY mare on May 19, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    salamat sa share i learn it

  37. Tom Belardes on May 19, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    I see all the mistakes I have made with my dragon fruit. In summer it gets over 110 here, it’s in hard clay soil. I need to tie it up better, replace the soil as best I can and see what it does. I also accidentally started a cutting, its small but happy.

  38. joan ramoutar on May 19, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    My dragon fruit 1 flower after a few small buds what should I do to it now ty

  40. Angel McKinney on May 19, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Just wondering what kind of fertilizer do you use. I have dragon fruit that are a few years old .haven’t flower yet.

  41. Erena Athaide on May 19, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Do we need to water them regularly

  42. Simon B. on May 19, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Is that liquid you watered with a fertilizer or was it just water

  43. Jimmy Tran on May 19, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    How often to water 💧

  44. Modern Köylü on May 19, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    if you don’t cut the young branches from the far end which have an average length ıt is very hard to get flowers.

    I’m also garden lover. dragon fruit plant one of my favrete fruit plant💚👌🏻

  47. marcos miranda on May 19, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    Kevin, I believe in all the plant for health.
    My question is how do I plant the Dragon fruit?
    My wife bought one fruit(white inside and red outside) but cut it in slices.
    How can I do to grow a Dragon fruit plant from scratch?
    I live in Wilm, NC. USA, the fruit cost me $5.99 plus tax.
    Will the plant stand the cold weather here?

  48. yolanda maniclang on May 19, 2022 at 8:46 pm
