Gardeners in USA and Canada want to grow dragon fruit in pots.
As long as the plant is kept from freezing, it will grow well with very
little soil. The photos below show different size plants. In order to
get flowers and fruits, the vines have to grow over 10 pounds in weight.

This picture shows a bonsai cactus
plant about 3.5 inches tall. The green
part is hylocereus undatus. The yellow
top is grafted for decorative value.

Richard Sar took this photo of two
dragon fruit plants growing in tubs.

Twelve dragon fruit growers got together in San Diego October 2005 to
compare the harvest. The flesh of the fruit range from white to pink to deep red.
The pink fruits come from hybrid seeds between the red and the white flesh plants.
Photos were taken by Edgar Valdivia who lives in Simi Valley.
