GREAT EATING ALONE OR MIXING WITH OTHER FRUITS

THE CACTUS MAKES A NICE ORNAMENTAL PLANT IN THE LANDSCAPE

THANK YOU


Story of this Seed:

THE SEEDS ORIGINALLY CAME FROM A NEIGHBOR. HER FAMILY HAS BEEN GROWING PITAHAYA FOR MANY YEARS. WE STARTED GROWING THEM ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO AND I HOPE TO ADD THIS TO ONE OF MY FAMILIES PASS ME DOWN CACTUS.


Growing Tips:

GERMINATION SUGGESTIONS: THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GERMINATE THE SEEDS. I SOAK THE SEEDS IN ROOM TEMPERATURE WATER FOR A WHILE. SCATTER ON PRE-MOISTENED, SOFT, WELL DRAINING MEDIUM. LIGHTLY COVER THE SEEDS WITH MORE MEDIUM AND GENTLY PRESS TO ENSURE GOOD SEED/SOIL CONTACT.

BE PATIENT. WHEN THE SEEDS GERMINATE THEY WILL HAVE TINY LEAFLETS. UNDER THE LEAFLETS THE LITTLE CACTUS WE ARE USE TO SEEING WILL EMERGE.

TRANSPLANT WHEN SEVERAL INCHES TALL OR THE PLANTS HAVE OUTGROWN THEIR CONTAINER. CAREFUL, EVEN THE BABIES HAVE SPINES.
