The dragon fruit tree resembles a cactus and the inner part of the small round fruit is usually red and white. At Present, Dragon Fruit Cultivation Method in the Roof Garden Tub is very popular.
Climate Required for Dragon Fruit
The inner part of the dragon fruit contains small soft seeds. The climate of our country is suitable for dragon fruit cultivation and so far good results have been obtained in experimental cultivation. If we want, we can cultivate dragon fruit in a big tub or drum in the roof garden of our house and fulfill both hobbies and nourishment. The following is a detailed description of the dragon fruit cultivation method in the roof garden.
When is the best time to cultivate dragon fruit?
Dragon fruit can usually be cultivated throughout the year. As it is a fairly hardy species, it can be planted in almost all seasons. However, if we cultivate dragon fruit on the roof and plant saplings from April to September to get a good yield, we will definitely get benefits.
We can cultivate dragon fruit in our roof garden in earthen tubs or drums. But it is best if we choose a 20-inch drum. Because in this size drum the seedlings will be able to germinate well and the yield will be much better.
What Kind of Soil is Needed
Although dragon fruit can be easily cultivated in almost all types of soils. But if we want a good yield, we must choose sandy loam soils rich in excellent organic matter. In the beginning, we have to collect sandy loam soil and clean it well. Then mix the amount of dung, 50 g of potash fertilizer, and 50 g of T, S, P, fertilizer well with the collected soil. Soak a mixture of manure and soil with an adequate amount of water. Now leave all the ingredients in the selected drum for 10 to 12 days. Then grind the soil in the drum well and leave it for another 4 to 5 days. When the soil becomes a little dry, plant good quality cut seedlings in drums or containers.
Irrigation and Care
If we do not take proper care of the dragon fruit tree, the yield will not be good. Although the dragon fruit tree is not attacked by a single pest, other surrounding care needs to be taken regularly. After planting, place the drum in a sunny place. As it is a cactus tree, it does not need much water to cultivate. When watering the seedlings, make sure that water does not accumulate at the beginning. Make 4 to 5 holes in the bottom of the drum to easily drain the excess water from the inside of the drum before filling the soil. As the stalks of the dragon tree are like vines, they should be tied to the poles with the light growth of the tree so that the tree does not fall down easily.
Dragon Fruit Collection
Dragon fruit cuttings can be collected at the age of 1 year to 18 months after planting. The fruit is ready to be eaten in just 35-40 days after flowering.
