Hylocerus undatus 'Skyline' is a type of dragon fruit which is also known as a night blooming cereus. It has many other names too, including the strawberry pear, the white-fleshed pitahaya; the belle of the night; moonlight cactus and queen of the night! The vining cactus eventually produces huge, ornate flowers at night-time and these close soon after the day dawns. This evergreen cactus grows either out of the ground or attaches itself from trees as an epiphytic forest plant. It uses aerial roots for support.
  • As a house plant it needs to be treated as a hanging, spreading plant.
  • It can reach a height of around 50cm and a spread of up to 3m wide in the wild, but as a house plant it will be contained by the size of the pot.
  • The scented, nocturnal flowers are a greenish-yellow-creamy colour, sometimes tinged with pink.
  • It is thought to originate from the West Indies; Caribbean basin; southern Mexico.
  • Tolerant of shade.
  • Use soil suitable for cacti - i.e. free-draining.
  • Requires very little water, but on a regular basis. Never allow the plant to stand in water.
  • Appreciates a fine misting of water regularly.
  • 1 plant in a 14cm hanging pot.
