Three segments of dragonfruit from an independent vendor on Amazon came with no roots.
So the segments had to grow those first.
It's been a month, it seems like, but only watered three times. They like to dry out between waterings, but not for too long like regular cactus do. The last time I watered them I thought, "Hey! Why not give it some organic fertilizer even though its roots are only just started?"
The bud showed day before yesterday as a mere bump. This is two days growth.
For me this is exciting as seeing plants come out of the dirt. It gets me every time.
I bet my other self $10.00 that the remaining two segments grow buds within a few days. I figure, either way how can I lose?
