Our Dragon fruit cuttings / plants – for sale
Why buy our fruit cuttings?
Many people let their dragon fruits branches grow all the way to the ground. We can not do that because in Suriname there is a danger that snakes and other animals can hide between them. So we are forced to prune our dragon fruits plants regularly. After providing all our neighbours with these other types of dragons, we have too many cuttings left and we can offer the dragon fruit plants for sale. That is why we can deliver them cheaply and the cuttings are always fresh and of good quality. Even though it is not a dragon fruit season, we can always supply cuttings.

You can buy the dragon fruit cuttings from us online. We always have a few in stock, but we prefer pruning the cuttings on request. They are sent to the Netherlands as quickly as possible where they are professionally packed for forwarding.
How to plant Dragon Fruiting Cuttings
The dragon fruit needs a post to grow along. We use wooden posts in Suriname so that the aerial roots can attach themselves well. The post is in airy soil. If the place gets too much water, it is advisable to turn the planting hole into a mound. They do need water but cannot be submerged.
Growing the cuttings
When the plant has reached the highest point of the post, a few cross posts must be fixed so that the dragon fruit plant can “hang”. It will then grow downwards and the plant could already make the first flower buds. If you have limited space, you can also plant dragon fruit in a large bucket with a post in the middle. The post does not have to be high, as long as the plant can “hang”. This is a way how to grow dragon fruit cuttings.
About the Dragon Fruit Plant
We know dragonfruit as Pitaya fruit or Hylocereus. It is a cactus-like plant that, with the help of aerial roots, makes its way up a post. We have a collection about 19 species that have been largely purchased from Matts Landscape in California. We already had the common species that occurs in Suriname. A strong commercial grower and bloomer with large fruits between 500 and 800 grams. No one here knows which variant it is, so we keep it on the
name: Surinam Red.
In our search for the yellow dragon fruit we encountered so many different types of dragon fruit plants that the choice was difficult to make. With our collection as a result. The yellow dragon fruit was not in stock and we still not have purchased it.
Dragon fruit tree? or plant?
Some people speak of a dragon fruit tree, but that is not correct. It remains a climbing plant, but because the plant can occupy the entire wooden post, it looks like the plant has a true trunk.
