    This website is based in the UK, and you have all kinds of exciting plants over there of which we Brits know little or nothing.  As pot plants go, yours doesn't exactly look healthy.  It looks as though it's been damaged by the ties holding it to the stick.  The compost looks fresh, so I'm guessing you've recently re-potted it, and maybe that will be all it needs to recover.  But you'll be able to get more constructive advice closer to home.

  • Thank you for the replies! I have 3 more that don't look as beat up as this one, but this is my biggest. It's still 100 degrees Fahrenheit and sun all day so I don't want it to get burned up in this powerful sun.

    I have grown these from seed some fifteen  years ago..the plants lived in the greenhouse summertime. .I brought them in for winter . I'm afraid that after fifteen year and only getting  a scraggly out of control plant it went on the compost heap.

     A plant combining of deadly  prickles and not much more. ( only my opinion)

    I gave it the same conditions as cacti. I will say this though It grew well !!!!!

    I'd love to see photos of  any fruit which grow on your plants..
