A Tale Of A Dargon

At last the dragon fruit that hubby's friend gave him, about ten years ago, now bearing fruit, for the first time. It did bloom once before this but the flower dried up and drop off at bud stage. This time we get to watch it grow and taste the fruit. So precious, like watching my child grow. Hubby requested that I should snap a photo of it daily, to monitor. I just took photo of it when I see changes.

I didn't even get to see the flower at full bloom. The flower open up for just a few hours. Hubby saw the full bloom very early in the morning, on his way to work. By the time I water the plants later in the morning, the flower had shut close. Anyway, grateful that it bear fruits. Since we planted it in a pot, we had never change pot or add soil / fertilizer etc. Not easy to handle cactus with thorns every where.

It is worth the wait as the fruit is so sweet. Too bad there is only one fruit. Hope there will be more in the near future after it start bearing fruit. Thanks for reading and hope your plants grow well. Happy gardening.
