These guys grow pretty fast and are some of the most beautiful cacti seedlings I've ever had! Mine have beautiful red new spines:) think I got seeds from you a year or two ago

Any idea how big these would need to be to flower?
I'm impatient so maybe I need to try graft onto something ha ha.

I have a Stenocereus stellatus large rooted cutting that flowered at about 4ft in height and 4 inch diameter. I would assume that this would be similar.  However may need to trigger a stress response / hormone release to spur earlier flowering from seedlings.

I hear grafting to different cacti can spur flowering with the various hormones flowing. I would think a mature dragon fruit that is flowering would be good to graft to.

Due to demand I am completely sold out. I will be germinating another larger batch of seedlings which will be available next year. Message me and I will add you to a waiting list.

Here are some pictures of the Stenocereus queretaroensis 'Pitaya de Zacatecas' seeds I have collected. Plants were collected from the largest and sweetest fruits. The cacti are grown in southern Zacatecas near the northern inland limits of its range in Mexico (This area ranges from zone 10A to 9B). I would describe the taste of like Raspberry jam, very sweet with some tangy berry like flavors (much sweeter then dragon fruit) and has a syrupy dragon fruit flesh. Think jam or perfectly ripe fig texture meets dragon fruit. Size from superior selections ranges from racket ball to tennis ball in comparison.

The Pitaya de Jalisco slightly different strain with collections more southern. It seems there are some distinctive strains in growing areas separated by distance and land barriers, since the cacti thrive in a wild and semi wild environment.

Outdoors in SoCal, these Stenocereus queretaroensis are slow the first few years I noticed. Once they get some mass they start to hit a stride and grow much quicker. Indoors with 18 hours of artificial light and temps always above 70F I can speed up growth much faster then outdoors in SoCal.

Once they achieve mass about the size of a standard salt shaker they start to speed up. They love the heat and seem to like humidity if its warm. When they actively growing in the summer they are receptive to moderate amounts of organic fertilizers. I would not recommend bothering fertilizing it between November and March unless you in an area of year round tropical or warm temps.
