I have decided to wait to plant this vine in the Spring, however this plant has already put on a quarter of its size in growth. Looking forward to seeing what it will do once the weather warms up

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.

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 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
