Growing Pitaya Seedlings | Culling the Pitaya Seedlings

Culling the Pitaya Seedlings: This step in growing pitaya from seed is vital. Up until this time the amount of time and energy spent on your part for growing any of the pitaya seedlings individually is next to nothing. From this point on you will be devoting substantial time and work to each individual pitaya seedling and the pitaya cactus plant it will mature into eventually. Now is the time to eliminate any weaklings.

Be Cruel! It doesn't matter if the reason was that the pitaya seed was not good to start. If the corner of the tray became too dry, or it it became too wet and some pitaya seedlings didn't grow well. Whatever the reason, if any of the pitaya seedlings are not robust and healthy, discard them! Even if the entire tray of pitaya seedlings isn't up to par, it is better to start a new tray than to push the failed tray to become a success. You want to start your pitaya cactus plants only from the best stock.
