Why tissue culture dragon fruit?
Dragon fruit almost always suffer from Botryosphaeria dothidea:
The fungal infection known by the scientific name Botryosphaeria dothidea causes blotchy red/brown spots on the stems of Dragon Fruit cacti. These spots are typically flat but slightly raised compared to adjacent normal areas. Sometimes these spots have an appearance of a bulls eye (see first picture below). Other times, this infection can result in multiple irregular spots that may coalesce together (see second picture below). This disease may first present as yellow areas on a branch that then develop the darker spots mentioned above. This disease does not seem to be deadly but has been reported to decrease plant vigor and fruit production by up to 44%. Because of unsterile pruning practices, this disease has become rather common in many parts of the world.
These plants will be shipped in a temporary small pot. They all vary in size ranging from5-8”. When you receive the plants go ahead keep plant in a pot with a well draining cactus mix. You can get a cactus mix from HD or Lowe’s.
We recommend planting a minimum of two plants for increased fruit production You can use different varieties or the same. Hand pollination will get you the most fruit. It is very easy to do. Many dragons are self fertile and this variety is as well. Palora is sweet and delicious!
