I don't know what happened to the third bud.
They bloom at night. This was on September 6.
The next morning, I was pleased to see the blooms hadn't faded. The flowers reminded me of Dutchman's Pipe Cactus, also called the Night Blooming Cereus. Like how I captured the bees buzzing in?
Close-ups of the bees and blooms.
Eventually the blooms turn to fruit, or rather the area behind the blooms become fruit.
Finally ready for harvesting two months later on October 20.
My vine doesn't produce nearly as much as my youngest uncle's dragon fruit, but way better than my previous dragon fruit flower and old house's dragon fruit pictures.
