Caring for Your Rainbow Dragon Fruit Plant

To help your Rainbow Dragon Fruit Plant thrive, follow these simple care instructions:

Planting

Your plant arrives in a biodegradable pot with organic soil, ready for transplanting. For best results, follow these steps:

Indoors
  1. Transplanting: Place the entire biodegradable pot into a larger container filled with organic soil. Ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging.
  2. Location: Choose a spot with plenty of sunlight. A sunny windowsill or a greenhouse is ideal.
  3. Watering: Water regularly but avoid overwatering. Allow the soil to dry slightly between watering sessions.
Outdoors
  1. Preparation: If planting outdoors, select a well-drained spot. Use cactus soil or organic soil mixed with gravel to improve drainage.
  2. Planting: Dig a hole large enough to accommodate a 33-gallon trash can. Drill holes in the bottom of the trash can for drainage and place it in the hole. Fill the bottom third with gravel.
  3. Support: Insert an 8-10 foot 2x4 into the ground next to the plant. Wrap burlap around the 2x4 to help the plant climb.
  4. Transplanting: Place the plant with its biodegradable pot into the prepared trash can and fill with soil.
  5. Watering: Water the plant regularly, ensuring the soil remains moist but not waterlogged.
Pollination

The Rainbow Dragon Fruit Plant is self-pollinating, which means it can produce fruit on its own. However, for larger and more abundant fruit, consider hand pollination. We offer a handy Pollinating Kit to make this process simple and effective.

Fertilizing

Use a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and fruit production. Organic options are best, as they provide the nutrients your plant needs without the risk of chemical buildup.
