How will you pick fruits if they're that far up the tree? I'm thinking your plant is not receiving enough light exposure or getting too much nitrogen. I've seen one house where they grow it on a pine tree but they keep it low and don't let it crawl up. They get many fruits but I heard people steal them.

trimming your vines back and watering with epson salt should kick them into flower.

Hey,
For the post I used 4inch electrical PVC, for the cross bars I used rebar. And for the length of it I used 10ft  electrical conduit.   I also wrapped the rebar and conduit in garden hose.

Brilliant !  Did you split the garden hose and then dress it on the rebars and tubes?

Yes cut the hose with a razor knife and put it over the rebar and conduit

As I have worked a lot with a US based dragonfruit supplier, I'm curious to know if this other seller knows that you are pretty much plagiarising their description of this particular variety? While it's all good to grow and sell the Makisupa variety, your credibility will be increased if you use a first hand description of your own instead of writing almost word for word from someone else's description. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry. But I just read the original and it's almost identical to yours. As for the purple flowered variety, any idea who created that? I've got one with a flower just like that in Australia and that's not what it was called when I purchased it.
