The Making of a Dragon Fruit (Part 2)

Hand Pollination done 3 weeks ago was successful.
The flower has dried up and the dragon fruit should ripen soon.
This is considered lucky as the first flowers do not always set fruit.

Is it the dragon fruit season? 2 more flowers found blooming.

This time we use a cotton bud instead of a paint brush to pollinate.

There were insects doing the job too but can we rely on them to pollinate successfully?

Here is a dragonfly on a dragon fruit plant waiting for a meal of pollinators.

The presence of dragonflies is an indication that the ecosystem is in good condition, since they are sensitive to pollution.
