Hi Denki, and welcome to ATP.

Does your Dragon Fruit plant get some sun during the day? They need at least a few hours of sun to put on flowers and fruit.

If there are trees overhanging the area can you cut back some of their branches to let the sun get through?

Hello Denki! I found this link: http://tastylandscape.com/2013...
Try to read through and see which aspect you may need to adjust on your side, maybe the frequency of watering, or position in the sun. You got the temperature it likes, so now see if you have made adjustments for its humidity, watering and light needs.

Jared, I hope that Dragon Fruit is growing inside. Have you had any luck with getting it to fruit?
