After a trip to Taiwan last year (where I got hooked on the very
civilized practice of eating Hylocereus fruits for breakfast), I
decided to install a dragon fruit plant in my greenhouse. It grew
slowly and overwintered nicely in a 5-gallon pot with a small trellis
in it, but when I put it outside for the summer it threw out six-foot
branches in all directions. There's no way that wild flailing needly
thing is going back inside until I tame it a bit. Has anyone any
pruning or tying-back experience to share? Thanks!
