Vanilla planifolia seedling - the vanilla orchid

Regular price $18.00 Sale

Established seedlings of Vanilla planifolia in 80mm pots with stake.

Grow your own vanilla beans! You'll need to pollinate the flowers manually with a toothpick, but this tall growing vine-like orchid can provide you with genuine vanilla beans. Due to this fact, purchasing this orchid is very easy to justify to your non-orchid growing spouse. It's actually a food crop, and therefore counts as being part of the vegetable garden.

Grows well outdoors in the tropics and subtropics. Can be grown indoors or in a greenhouse in cooler climates.

Sorry, no sales to Tasmania, Western Australia or the N.T.
