This is more for fun because from seed to flower and fruit will take 4-7 years. But they are nice! I am growing here will be in pots due to cold climate here. The reason why I grow Hylocereus undatus (White-fleshed Pitahaya) is easy to buy and the plant is self pollinate. Although red-fleshed variety fruit is sweeter, it require pollinate with other plants to fruit.
種這個主要是好玩的. 因為實生苗要4-7年才會開花結果. 但是也很不錯! 種白肉品種的原因是取得容易將來長成會容易自花授粉. 雖說紅肉品種較甜但須異株授粉. 維基百科資料,這種的是白肉的: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hylocereus_undatus Farm growing, see: http://ispoint.blogspot.tw/2012/11/blog-post_5824.ht 專業栽培: http://ispoint.blogspot.tw/2012/11/blog-post_5824.ht

1.從熟果中取出種子. 成熟的種子是黑亮小小的. (見圖) 將種子置於溼潤的土表(使用砂質土或排水良好的介質)放在溫暖的地方在1-3天就會出芽.
2.Transplant the seedlings when they are 6″ high and crowded. Plant them in the ground or in large planters. Keep them in moist but well drained soil in full sun location. It will require 6′-8’concrete pole (1′-2′ into the ground) as support to grow well. It prefers growing in warm temperature.
2.小苗長到6吋時太擠時要移植. 以地植為佳,深盆次之. 全日照並維持一定土壤溼度,另外須建攀爬用6-8呎水泥柱(柱要入土深1-2呎)架著以利快速生長. 它喜熱喜強光並需適時施肥和灌溉.
