Q.Pitaya Tips Are Redish-brown Colour, Is It Health?

Zone City (inside house) | WorriedPitayaParentxD added on March 19, 2023 | Answered

My Pitaya (yellow Dragonfruit) plant is one year old. Some parts of the plant have redish-brown tips but some are green. There is a new stem growing from the plant and its also the redish-brown colour. I am worried since it’s my first seed grown plant. Is this normal? What can I do about it? (I want to eat fruits from this plant, will it also be affected bcs of the tips?)

Here are some articles that will help you to care for your plant:
