Free Shipping! Vanilla Bean Orchid Plants in a 5 1/2" square pot (2 plants per pot) on an 18" U Trellis

(2 reviews) Write a Review

This novel orchid is a vining, tropical plant that produces the pod we all call a vanilla bean. It is not for the novice gardener, but makes an excellent addition to the orchid hobbyist's collection. Like most tropical orchids, it will require a greenhouse to thrive; it needs high humidity and temperatures dipping below 55 degrees will damage it. Being a vining plant, it will require some sort of support, such as a bamboo stake. We planted ours at the base of a support post in the greenhouse and it thrived; It grew up into the horizontal girders and bloomed like crazy! The problem was the flowers were too high for us to hand pollinate, so it did not produce any vanilla beans. Think about it and don't make our mistake. 

These Vanilla Bean Orchids plants come with 2 plants per pot and are being sold and even shipped, if you chose that option, on bamboo U stakes. They have been propagated in orchid bark.  Keep them in a warm, humid, moderate light.

    All plants I’ve received from Cal Poly Pomona have been flawless. This Vanilla Bean Orchid was no exception. It was even better than the photos. Highly recommend.
