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.

The dragon fruit came in great condition, arrived quickly, and already had health roots! Very excited for some fruit!
Very good condition.
Plant is very healthy and it was growing new shoots during receiving. They say that this is very good variety due to taste, growing, and fruiting. Again I love to support the school also.
I have purchased several Dragon Fruit plants from Cal Poly and all of them were healthy. That being said, there is not much that I can say and beats gambling on buying cuttings from unknown sellers. Buy from Cal Poly and get a nice plant and also know that you are supporting their horticulture program.
