Plant care: Dragon fruit are a tropical fruiting cactus. Dragon fruit will not grow in cold climates, so make sure that the temperature is above 40 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent cold damage. Protect from hard freezes. Dragon fruit can be grown in containers or in the ground, planted in well-drained soil, full sun and trained to a heavy-duty trellis to support weight of this fast-growing plant. Avoid overplanting into very large containers, instead, gradually increase container size in relation to the plant size. We recommend a complete fertilizer during the growing season. Avoid overwatering in the winter to ensure the plant does not rot off.
All our dragon fruit plants have been greenhouse grown. When you receive your plants, please be patient in acclimating them to their new environment. This means slowly transitioning them from shade to full sun over a period of at least three weeks to avoid sun scald. This could take longer in extreme heat.

Plants arrived on time and all looked great. So excited to have AX and Condor varieties with the first ones that I got from Cal Poly Nursery. Excellent customer service, Kelsey made sure I got my orders right. Thank you again.
I was only bummed I could only get one of these.
The plant arrived safely and the plant is healthy. I have no complaints.
I’m very happy with my order! I got free Zamorano too! Very fast shipping, well packed and the plants came healthy. Highly recommended!
Arrived in excellent condition I repotted it to 1 gal and it is doing well
I can't complain. They look really great eventhough the soil was a little dried due to the shipping but thats okay. Plant is currently thriving! Love it because I know I'm supporting the school.
