I just got in the mail a Dragon fruit plant for my bro for Christmas. I have attached a picture:
I have some questions about caring for it.
First, I saw on the internet that a piece of the plant breaking off is good for the plant because it stimulates growth. Is this true? I am asking because a piece broke off during shipping. As you can see, I am trying to graft it.
Second, how much sunlight, water, soil, and fertilizer?
Third, do I need a thing for it to grow on?
Finally, is there anything important I need to know about caring for this plant?
My brother loves this plant and I want it to survive
Any help will be appreciated,

|Hey Jared: here's the link to the previous thread where you asked about growing Dragon fruit. I already answered your care questions there.
The thread "Dragonfruit growing" in Ask a Question forum
On the broken off piece, it will not re-attach to the other stem. But if you just lay it on the soil and keep it moist, it may root and grow into a second plant. Let the broken ends dry and scab over.
