Notes on Cultivation

Tolerates floods if in open area that dries soon after the rains stop. Tolerant of droughts. Does not tolerate freezing temperatures or near freezing temperatures, especially if moist or wet. Most commercial growers in Taiwan use post style or fence style cultivation methods.

Dragon fruit flowering is triggered by photoperiod, day length. Artifical lighting systems are in place to increase production, but they are very innefficient at this time in their use of resources.
