It’s been a while since I showed you my dragon fruit cactus. It’s been a RAPID grower and finally outgrew the trellis.

What do I do now? The cactus has a little cut where the weight leans against the corner of the trellis. Will it harm it? I’ve heard snipping the tips will make it branch out. Is this true? What’s the next step for this? Do you think this trellis is a good permanent trellis for the plant, or should I consider something stronger? The trellis is slightly leaning to one side.

You could Put something like this Together & Give it More Height At the same time. Just Build it around the Pot maybe so you don't have to disturb it. You Can also Prune. & the Prunings Can be Used for Cuttings(y)

I recently tried a dragon fruit for the first time.


As well as the last.
