Golden dragon is hilocereus undatus spp luteocarpus (origin from Yucatan),after that,exist several cultivars (oblong,round,medium and extra large size,longer or smaller bractes).
Prof Mizrahi from Negev University selected more than 3 cultivars by his own.
Bruce (from australia) sold plants to TLM in Philippines and they named this variety as ISIS gold,that means everyone use to re-name a variety for business purpose.Same happened with Apollo variety,and previously with Frenkie's red (orinal name because of frenkie's farm) , and S-serie from Paul Thomson (e.g.: S8 renamed from Linda Nickerson as sugar dragon etc.)

I have 3 varieties of Golden dragon growing in South Italy.

Anyone like to take a guess on the chance of this being a Megalanthus cross? Red flesh fruit, no spikes, self pollinating. From Vietnam apparently.

Looks like a natural mystic

Hello guys, I have aged sheep manure (8months old) with redworms and grasses growing above, I want to put it on my dragons soon, they are now potted but I'm going to plant them in field until next month. My cutting are 1 and 2 years old, how much the quantity per plant should be? Furthermore, how much epsom salt you use to spray plants?
Thanks

Someone told me to keep them dry until flowering in late may/june.


Not good advice in my opinion.

I'm a newbie, what is a good advice according your experience?

Today I applied vermicast to my plants inside greenhouse,by the second half of this month on T will be always always above +2 (minimun during the coldest nights),right now I have condor,dark star,vodoo child,thai dragon and some other varities starting new growths.

Someone told me to keep them dry until flowering in late may/june.

I have 1 year plants bought in US started from mature cutting and older plants of 3 years,hope they will fruit for the first time this year.

I also cutted the top of each branch as other growers suggested.

Can they absorb the vermicast nutrients even without watering?
Should I put more vermicast?

Never again from mattslandscape.com!!!! A very bad person! I paid more than 300 dollars, said he ship the next Monday and I will get the tracking number by mail.
I wrote to him because I didn't get the mail, no answers... So I wrote again... Again... Again... Again... After a month he said is going to ship!!! They were 2 packs, till now only 1 shipped, the other one from the tracking number result that the courier doesn't get it yet.... So I'm writing email and on Facebook messenger to Matt, he keep to ignore me even if I see her posts in succulents groups.
