Dragon Fruit Plant

Zone 98672 | Anonymous added on April 15, 2019 | Answered

Hello, While I was replanting my Dragon fruit plant the wind picked up and bent the plant so that it broke half way through. I immediately held the plant back up so that the broken edges were placed back together and then splinted the plant up right. I read your plant repair article and had hope that this will heal as it did not break all the way through. But at the end of your article it said that softer stemmed plants don't tend to do well with this. Are Dragon Fruit one of these plants? the stem that broke is just starting to grow branches and I am not sure if the plant is old enough to make it a cutting and I do not know how or want to take that course of action if it can be avoided. Sincerely, Rachel Foss

No, this method would not likely work for you.
This article will discuss propagation and is likely your best method to safe the broken stem.
