Vanilla flower, shoot or root?

    1 responses

Hi Everyone,

I had my Vanilla planifolia growing up a dead livistonia palm trunk but it was out growing it, I recently moved it over to what I affectionately call a 'coconut husk kebab' during the move I noticed that all 3 vines had severed their terrestrial roots yet all are absolutely powering.

I noticed these swollen buds a week or so after the move, it probably too early to tell but I figured I'd give it a shot. Does anyone think they are new lateral shoots or flower buds? I doubt they are aerial roots because they usually grow from the other side of the leaf base.

When I unwrapped them from the palm trunk the largest vine would be about 4m and the smallest is 2m. Their length is quite deceptive when wrapped around something.

Cheers guys,

I'm not a vanilla expert, but they look like aerial roots to me. They can grow from that side of the leaf shoot, since they do that all the time on my vine.
