VanillaBotanical Name: Vanilla planifolia
Description

The fermented pod of this climbing orchid is harvested from the Vanilla Vine or orchid, an aromatic sweet scents used to flavour cakes, and perfumes. Must be hand pollinated. The only insect capable of pollinating the blossom is the Melipona, a bee (see video) , native only to Mexico so all plants must be hand pollinated within 12 hours of the flower opening. The pods take nine month to develop.

Vanilla Vine

Have been growing in a 30x30cm pot in 2 parts soil, 1 part orchid mix and 1 part cow manure. Its growing well except it started as 2 vines and one vine rotted at the base. Now it is a single vine but looking very healthy. I have a water catcher under it. | Kima - Booval, Qld 30-Mar-2020

Tessa's Edible Fruits
Update: 2234 days 16hrs

Comments: - This guy has grown so quickly and is loving it's shady humid area, no flowers yet.  It is growing well in a pot under a patio and I have just had 6 successful cuttings take root and form new leaves from this main plant.  If you have somewhere to dark for another plant to grow then give this one a try.

In the bathroom. Looks healthy but it will take a long time for it to grow large enough to flower at this rate.

Pademelon1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1420 days 10hrs

Comments: - Was an experiment growing outside. Grew amazingly the first year, tripling its height! Unfortunately it rotted extensively the following winter. It surived, but never recovered, so eventually we removed it. We tried to grow its cutting inside, and it started off well, but again it rotted. Not entirely sure what the cause of the rot was however. I will try again in the future, as it is a beautiful vine.

Vsilagy's Edible Fruits

Comments: - Very nice elegant little plant. They are quite delicate when young and damaging the single growing tip while they are small can be catatsrophic and can stop new growth. They need constant high humidity and heat. Would not reccomend outside the tropics or a heated greenhouse. I have mine in a bark/sphagnum/perlite mix.

Only started to grow this again. Have tried a few times with Vanilla planifolia, but I like to persist. Growing it in the temperate zones means monitoring the watering schedule before the weather drops and starts to get cold. Similarly with cacao, in the warm months, plenty of protection, humnidity and shade.

I love vanilla.  I got this off ebay a few months ago and had it in the green house but wasn't doing well.  Now it is in a hanging basket on my front verada.  It seems to be surving.  Keeping my fingers crossed.
