What is it?
Where its Grown
The planting of dragon fruit is much like that of pineapple as well, the roots can be cut and planted to make new plants.
The plant has long leaves and many of them, these must be tied up so as to avoid ground pests and crowding, some common methods of suspending the plant is to hang its leaves on a clothes line like wire, this holds the plant up and makes picking easier. Because of the strange nature of the plant, it can be made as a display by carefully trimming and wiring it up much like a bonsai tree or hedge!
Harvesting must be done by hand as the leaves off branches grow crazily.
