    Have only noticed it this year. It’s been very hot and it rarely rains this time. I’d like to think there’s a connection to the yellowing leaves. Anybody growing dragon fruits out there? I’d appreciate your inputs. Ty. B

    Hi budd30! I’m not growing dragon fruits but got interested in your question. I did a bit of research and came across this site: https://zenyrgarden.com/why-are-my-dragon-fruit-plants-turning-yellow/

    It seems your dragon fruits are getting sunburn if you’re in a zone with temperature that gets higher than 38°C. The site offers some solutions like putting some kind of protection. I really think you’ll find good ideas there for the recovery of your plants.

    Thanks for the site. It was an interesting read. I have a few hundred plants growing so it’s kind of hard to protect them by covering in terms of labor and cost. But i agree, other ideas are really useful. Ty B

    I honestly believe it could be a little bit dangerous for your plant if the weather remains extremely sunny with no regular rain.
