I had my Dragon fruits flower last week, they flower for one night only! So in about 40+ days i should know what type they are and have some tasty homegrown fruits! The flowers were amazing, i felt privileged to be able to see them.

oh nice! you have a youtube channel? just a question: why do some plants only flower for 1 day or 1 hour or some even flower for only 10 minutes? is . there a reason for that?

@optimus prime, Sure, are you based in Europe? Once it has finished fruiting I am planning to give it a very good prune and re-pot it with a frame for it to grow up. I'm planning to make a lot of cuttings. I would be very happy to do some trading :D
