    I'd rather just buy an Eddie that I don't have to sprout from seed for that much. Also, I clicked an that "rainbow rose seeds" link and since when are roses considered "hard to care for"? The weather takes care of mine just fine. More proof that it's fake I guess, that and the fact that, as far as I know, roses can't produce blue pigment.

    Know your seller, know the location, and know the product.
    Do this and you can master online plant shopping.

    In other words, Stay away from chinese dealers that sell radishes as "rainbow seeds".

    PS- Dragon fruit is an amazing succulent. I highly encourage you to keep them,
    as their foliage is (IMO) very attractive, and the fruit is awesome.

    I didn't know that it was a succulent. Masonix may have found someone to give his surplus to.

    Ok, I have just googled dragon fruit and I have no room for a plant that big in winter, so I cannot take in masonix's surplus. Sorry.

    Today's lesson: Never underestimate the potential size of a plant.

    Hylocereus is definitely cool. Very forgiving in my experience. I've heard in a greenhouse or in habitat they grow to be enormous.

    It seems that they can be kept small with trimming. Here are two different examples:
