Dragon Fruit White Seeds
Info: The dragon fruit is also called pitahaya and belongs
to the cactus family. They are climbing cacti that grow fast and need a support,
a framework or a wall on which they can climb. Like all cacti they need an
earth-sand mixture in a ratio of 1:1. The flowers are impressive and large and
the fruits are very tasty under their scaly skin.
The Hylocereus undatus variety has white flesh and a pink skin.
Sowing & cultivation: Place the seeds on the soil-sand mixture (light germination) and keep moist, but avoid waterlogging. Optimum temperature: 18-25°C. Water the young plants well, in the case of mature plants the root balls may dry out completely before they are watered well. It is advantageous to place the plants outside in summer, because they need a lot of light. If necessary, cactus fertilizer can be added. One overwinters them like all cacti indoors at 10 to 15°C in a bright place with very economical watering.
