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!
