Hylocereus undatus is the most common of several cacti that produce distinct fruits called, dragonfruit or red pitaya. Dragon fruit, among the most prized of all cactus fruits, is a red fruit with green spikes. The huge, white, multi-layered blooms of this species show at night, lending to another of the species? nicknames, night-blooming cereus. Individual blooms can be over a foot in diameter. This three-ribbed species propagates very easily by cuttings and is easier to grow than most cacti. They are suited to tropical climates and can tolerate over-watering. Hylocereus undatus is also an extremely popular and very effective grafting cactus. Hylocereus?s rapid growth will allow slower-growing cacti such as astrophytum and ariocarpus to grow at a much faster pace when grafted. Hylocereus undatus grows in areas throughout the world, including Asia, South America and Hawaii. But the plant?s native origin is debated.
Each lot contains 1 rooted cutting approx 4″-6″. These cuttings produce fruits with with Red inner flesh. We also offer cuttings from the white-fleshed variety. Cuttings will be shipped bare root.
