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.Get the seeds from ripen fruit, the seeds are black, glossy and small.  (See the seed image.) Plant the seeds in moist warm location.  Use sandy soil or well drained medium.   About 1-3 days, seeds will sprout.

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.

Mistletoe cactus (Rhipsalis baccifera) is a rarely seen succulent, it belongs to the Cactus family but it is not prickly.  Because it is native in tropical warm regions so it must be indoor over winter if you live in a cold climate.  It prefers growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist but well drained soil or medium.  Some of this genus are more shade tolerant.  This makes a nice house plant.  It is easier and faster to propagate by cuttings.

絲葦喜溫暖,一般而言它不是那麼常見的仙人掌科植物,由於沒有刺+長速慢,很適合作成吊盆.  若你所在的氣候區較冷,要記得搬進室內過冬.  雖然也能從種子繁殖不過速度和難易度上還是以扦插方式為主.  這屬的植物的光照需求較為耐蔭,全日照到半日照的環境都可以栽種.
