Pitaya Purple Haze

    1 responses

GaryJohn1 starts with ...
I have a Pitaya Purple Haze , it is 14 month old and has produced its first lot of flowers. It has over 20 buds at the moment , question is , is that too many for a such a young plant to support , should I remove a few buds , or just let it go and see what the success rate is for pollination/fruiting.

Hi GaryJ

Don't worry the flower buds will not set all into fruits. Plants have mechanism in place to cull surplus blossoms to protect themselves from over production.
It's called flower/fruit drop.

If the blooms turned out to fruits which is highly unlikely, that is the perfect appropriate time to thin out the fruitlets. Let's say from 100% to 50% is not a bad call for a young DF like yours.

Happy gardening :-)
