Growing (yellow) dragon fruit from seed
To be a spectator of the full process of growing the hylocereus megalanthus you have to start by growing seeds of dragon fruit. Check out the step-by-step instructions below!
- 1. You can of course buy the seeds at a store, but you can also get them from a dragon fruit yourself. This is done by carefully scooping the black seeds out of the flesh with a spoon. After this, it is best to wash off the pulp so that you are only left with the seeds. Then place the seeds on a damp piece of paper and let them rest for 24-hours.
- 2. Preparing the soil. The first step to planting seeds is preparing the soil bed in which the seeds will be planted. It is important to choose a spot that is reachable by sunshine for at least six hours per day. Choose a well-drained potting soil that is able to retain moisture well.
- 3. Prepare the pitaya seeds. Make sure the seeds are dried on a paper towel for at least 12 hours.
- 4. Planting the seeds. The hylocereus megalanthus seeds can be sprinkled on the soil and do not need to be covered deeply.
- 5. Watering the pitaya seeds. Water the soil bed consistently and evenly. Make sure it does not dry out!
- 6. Thinning and transplanting seedlings. Thin out the weak seedlings to give the strong dragon fruit seeds more room to grow. This will also organize your growing process! If your soil bed becomes too crowded you can transplant seedlings to other pots.
- 7. Support system. Your (yellow) pitaya plants will need support once they have grown tall to grow bigger. Since yellow dragon fruits are climbing cacti, they need a skeleton of wood or a different framework that they can climb.
Note: Seeds under the right condition usually germinate within a week already
