Hello,

I’ve had a Bethlehem Lilly plant at our house long back and have had flower many times. Those flowers would bloom at night and spread an amazing smell which goes almost a block around my house and it withers off in the morning.

Recently I planted a dragon fruit plant, and was doing some research online about how to take care of it and I noticed that the dragon fruit flower looks exactly same as the Bethlehem Lilly flower. I noticed a lot of similarities between them like the nice smell, blooming at night and withering off by morning, shape color, structure etc. I also saw that in most cases we have to manually pollinate the dragon fruit plant for it to bear fruit else the flower will just wither off without fruit.
I’m just wondering if the Bethlehem Lilly plant also could bear some kind of fruit if we do manually pollinate the flower. Any thoughts on this? Any information on similarities between these two plants?

Regards,
Jerry

to the forum @mr_fruitz (Jerry) ....... although I have never heard of either of your plants before today, I have to say they both look very interesting, and I've been looking them up online. (y)
