Dragon Fruits 2018

Dragon fruits plant has been growing quite well.  Given that they are protected and kept warm or away from the harsh summer sun.  From the seed germination to maintaining healthy stalks, it's a learning experience.  All the YouTube postings really helped me to learn how this particular tropic cacti would behave.  It's still unpredictable how it will be this year, but it made it through the winter of 2017-2018 - 35F - 40F - 65F; spring of 2018 - 65F-80F, summer of 2018 -85F - 110F, and now the fall of 2018.  During the winter period of 2017-2018, luckily I improvised and wrapped the plant with heavy mil clear plastic and a rope holiday light.  The rope light is switched to turn on at dusk till early morning.
The only think I am really reluctant to do right now is to thin it out to several planters.
I am hoping to see some blossom and fruits in 2019.
