    Hi Fairy, some varieties can self-polinated, these do not need to have a second plant. Like the Hylocereus undatus ÒVietnamese giant”. You can get in touch with the experts on the dragon fruit forum to find out which variety you have. Link below with more helpful reading to get you start on this project. Best wishes!

    You just need a second plant, get one from another grower or get a different plant with a different color of fruit to be sure, It just can’t be a cutting or a piece of the same plant which is called a clone. It can be a seedling or clone but just not a clone of the same plant. Yes the plants need to be in close contact, you can hand pollinate for more production. They need to both bloom in the same day and relatively same time.

    Please explain me what I have to do? Do I have to find another plant and cut from it and pot it next to mine?

    Just FYI, you need a second Hylocereus for cross polination of a different plant in order to get fruit. ie. not a clone of this plant.
