Just wondering why only one of my photos was accepted.  Dragon fruit is a cactus. Mine are cuttings and I show my progress of them rooting. I figured the folder for baby plants was the right place since they are just starting to grow. They are in soil now so I will take an updated photo soon.  It wasn't rejected just left undecided while my other photo was accepted.
Happy New Year Kate...!!!! hope all is well
with you and yours... cactus season coming
up soon...!!!
