Are these roots growing out of my Dragonfruit?

Mykel02August 24, 2013

I checked my Draginfruit this morning and found root like things sticking out of the top branch... was wondering what they are? I'm new to growing dragonfruit so I don't know what these are...

Yes, they attach to something, such as a tree or support, to grow up.

These are called aerial roots which grow more in the low light condition.

my Dragon Fruit just began putting out aerial roots this Summer.
