Customer Tips & Reviews Vanilla Vine
Grows in a pot under a large fern tree in Brisbane.
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.

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 t...

I cook and Im great at growing (Australian) Orchids. This one will be more of a challenge but a terrific reward

The idea of growing my own vanilla is so romantic, I have already practiced pollinating on another vine so I am very excited to get my own flowers, in a few years! haha. I have already researched the curing and drying process.

I would love to grow this orchid but know nothing about growing it, would it even think about growing in the humid sunshine coast ?
Living in a cooler area. its possible to grow vanilla indoors in the bathroom where there is high humidity. Have known of them to even set fruit.

FERNTREE GULLY, VIC, Australia
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.
These have grown really quickly and are doing great. I spray every day with water to create humidity. Not sure how to get flowers so will need to do more research
