  1. Hi. I don't know how to build a trellis for dragon fruits..can I grow the plants in the big pot like u and just use a big wood in the middle and tied the dragon fruits plants to the stick. Does it still give me fruits after 2 or 3 years. Thanks

  2. Mine have 3 years, they're in a super big pot, they just don't grow. I water them well, but let them dry nicely. the only growth I see is if I spray them daily or every other day. They're only about an inch long, and very very thin. Their bottom is very thin, should I bury them a bit more? They can't support themselves and I had to tie them to a chopstick. Maybe my pot is too big?

  4. I live in north Texas and want to plant a dragonfruit, but we get winters on occasion down to 10-20F. Can I still plant one for the long term, and how can I protect it in winter, if necessary?
