New obelisk for a Caudiciform plant

This particular Caudiciform grows vines and it's finally doing something after being patient with it for a couple years. To the left againts the white window frame is one of the Dragon Fruit.

You have a blue and a green too??.. my little guys are settling in just fine... they seem to have a fine variety of utterances from mutters to squawks.

two greens and a blue. Three females. A green and the blue are just about 11 years old and the other green is a little over one.

My dragon fruit have a wee bit of catching up to do - they are about 1 cm tall just now... How old is your plant? And just how quickly did it get 'large'?

The plant is 3 years old. It was a cutting about 6 inches tall to start. Sorry I have a hard time thinking in cm's :) Once it starts growing it will be non stop. Another one on the other side of the window is wtice the height and it's four years old.

I prefer inches myself, just brainwashed from work I guess. The seedlings are less than a half inch just now; I am just letting them do their own thing until they get to a decent size to handle, then I'll pot them up. Hopefully I will have room for a couple to mature. Have to convince some friends to raise the others, providing that I don't kill the poor things off! Thanks for the info!

Good luck with them Grammazoo. You are going to be amazed on how fast they grow once they start. Get them outside for the summer in the shade.
