Club soda would be putting carbon dioxide into the soil, not oxygen. Seems like you would be creating an anaerobic environment in the pot. That does not seem like a good idea to me.

My first fruit from seeds ordered from dragonfruit 101 in nov 2015 is ripening now (I believe this batch was advertised from peru, but same large yellow fruit with no valleys between spines). The fruit is tiny, so plant probably needs a few years to size up before I know whether the seedling is true to type.  2 of the other seedlings I kept have topped their trellises but not flowered yet.

I hope you have better luck with yours Rob, not sure if that’s the yellow I got from you but mine turned out to look just the same as my regular yellow mega. Only had one fruit last season and it was good, fortunately I like the regular yellows anyway
