Dragon Fruit Plant Care All of 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 full shade to full sun over a period of at least three weeks. Dragon fruit is 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. Dragon fruit plants can be grown in large containers or the ground. 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.

    Beautiful well rooted dragon fruit

    Posted by Paul Clifford on Jul 25th 2021

    So far I have purchased about a dozen varieties of dragon fruit from Cal Poly Pomona Nursery. They were shipped promptly and very well packaged. On delivery in April they were well rooted small plants a few inches tall. It's now late July, about 3 months since receiving them, and they have grown to a height of two to three feet. Their growth has been vigorous and I have now planted them in large tubs with a trellis. I have been able to take cuttings that I have rooted. I'm eager to leave another review next year when they fruit to give my impressions of the fruit of each variety. I live in Northern California on the east shore of the San Francisco Bay, so I don't know how well some of the varieties will survive the cool winter, but I'm prepared to cover them if needed.

    Received my dragon fruit promptly and in good condition as I have in the past with others. Great selection. Will buy again from this nursery.

    DRAGON FRUIT LISA PLANT

    Posted by Scott T on Jul 24th 2020

    I ordered four different dragon fruit varieties at the same time. The Lisa plant is not doing great. When it was delivered, it was one of the two that were loose in the box with a soft brownish growing tip. The tip of the plant is turning black and getting dry and hard. I hope she makes it, but am not sure what to do. I was a little nervous about the shipping because I live in Northern California and it was the peak of summer heat. Turns out I was justified. The plants shipped out on a Tuesday and were delivered the following Monday, even though they shipped USPS 3-day Select. When I opened the box, the soil from the pots was scattered all over the box and was bone dry. A couple of the plants were loose and out of the pots. There was a small arrow drawn with a Sharpie on the side indicating which direction should be up, but this was ignored by the USPS (it was left on my porch on its side). I hope they improve the shipping. For the $26 charged for shipping and handling, these could have easily shipped UPS and been here in 2 days instead of 6.

    Healthy, rooted and cheap $5. While people on the internet are charging $20 per cutting WITHOUT root.
