Package Include: 100 pcs seeds Tip: Like other cacti, if a healthy piece of stem is torn, it can take root in the soil and become an independent Bush. The plant can withstand temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius and very short periods of frost, but will not last long exposure to sub-zero temperatures. Excessive watering or high rainfall can cause rotting of fruits and flowers. Pitahaya begins to bloom at night and fades in the morning. They rely on nocturnal pollinators such as bats and butterflies for fertilization. The pregnant not all species yields fruit, while crossing leads to self-fertile varieties perekrestimsya. In the second species, as a rule, increases fruit set and their quality. Choosing the right conditions If you decide to grow dragon fruit from seed, it can take two years or so before your plant gives the first fruits. Decide whether you will grow the plant outdoors or indoors, on open ground or in a pot. Dragon fruit grows well in pots. If you use a pot, its diameter should be 37-60 cm and a minimum depth of 25 cm with a grid for weaving. However, the plant can eventually grow to such a size that it will need to be transplanted into a larger pot. 1. If your plant will grow outside (in a pot or just in the ground), choose a place with a partial shade. The roots can remain in the shade, while the top of the plant for better flowering should be in the sun. 2. If you live in a warm climate with a long warm season, this plant can survive on the street. It is usually resistant to light frosts, but no more. Bring the plant into the room, if your area is harsh winter. Soil Use sandy soils for cacti with good drainage. After all, in fact, this plant is a cactus. Worst of all, if the soil is too wet and muddy. They are picky in bait, so do not require much attention for food. Plant them in the part of your garden where the water is not collected in puddles. If there is too much rain in your area, plant dragon fruit on the hills or hills so that the water flows down. If you decide to plant it in a pot, take a large container with drainage holes in the bottom. If you do not have a special soil for cacti, you can prepare it yourself from sand, substrate and compost. Fill the pot 7 cm from the edges. Planting and caring for dragon fruit Plant level with the soil line. Pour a few into each pot and lightly sprinkle with soil. 1 as for planting seeds, you will have to wait and see which ones will germinate. After a few weeks you will have sprouts and they are likely to need to be planted. Otherwise, they will not be able to grow fully. 2 before planting, mix a small amount of slow-acting fertilizer with the bottom layer of soil; it can accelerate your plant’s growth. Occasionally fertilize. Be careful with the fertilizers: the excess can easily kill your plant. For best results, feed them slow-acting low-nitrogen fertilizer for cacti about once every two months. You may be tempted to add more to accelerate growth, but that won’t help. IMPORTANT! As you grow, make sure the dragon fruit gets enough sunlight. The top of the plant should be in the sun about 80 percent of the time. If this is not provided, the plant may hibernate. Irrigation Water the dragon fruit as well as the tropical cactus. In other words, pour a small amount of water, and only when the plant is almost dry. If it is large, it is recommended to install the support rod and keep it moist. In this case, it is useful to use droppers. Excessive watering is usually the most common cause of death of this plant. Do not give in to temptation; it does not need abundant watering. When you use a pot, keep in mind the possibility of removal of the water from it. If there are no drain holes, even less water is needed. Otherwise, water will accumulate on the bottom and cause rotting and root decomposition. Note: 1. Please seeds stored in a cool, dry place. 2. The volume of the soil should keep a distance of 1-2cm from the rim of the pot 3. No need to water too often, keep the soil moderately moist 4. The color and brightness may differ a little for the difference of shooting facilities, computer display screens or other factors. Your understanding is so appreciated.
