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.

They also grow in full sun...
my Dragon Fruit just began putting out aerial roots this Summer.
