Description

An epiphytic cactus with climbing stems, Selenicereus setaceus is similar to Hylocereus, commonly known as Dragon Fruit. Selenicereus setaceus are commonly called Pineapple cactus due to its sweet tropical tasting fruit. The fruit has pink skin and white flesh, it tends to be smaller in size compared to Dragon Fruit species and or hybrids.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, rocky shores, and sandy shores.

Syn.
Hylocereus setaceus

Ideal Growing Conditions.
Prefers a free draining soil in a sunny position but can tolerate partial shade. Is drought and frost tender.

Specifications.
20-30cm Length
Rootless Cutting

Your cutting needs to be callused before being ready for planting. Leave to dry for several days prior to planting. Cactus species are among the easiest plants to root at home. The process works any time of year, but cactus cuttings potted in late summer to early autumn root fastest. Fill an adequately sized pot with a half half mixture of high quality potting mix and perlite. The potting mix should consist of well composted pine bark and large particles, this ensures air flow to the roots and good drainage.

We cannot send plants to Western Australia & Tasmania due to restrictions.

We strongly recommended to select Express Post shipping for all plant orders to minimise the transit time.
