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. For shipping or curbside. 

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.

    What an amazing product from a great organization. I found this plant and immediately purchased it as the price point is unbelievable. The plant arrived quickly and was packaged very carefully so it was in perfect condition. Very healthy and beautiful, bought it in Winter and now it is growing quickly as Spring approaches. Excited for the transplant! Great customer service as well, thank you!

    Just like the photo! Arrived quickly and well boxed, very well packaged! Thank you for the be informed style of stating when plants are sent. Very happy to support university students. I looked all over San Diego, well, the places I know for this interesting vanilla bean plant. Some might say this is expensive but orchids are and these are a beautiful specimens.

    The packaging of this plant was absolutely perfection. Nothing was damaged in the transit, granted it only shipped <60 miles. In addition the plant is gorgeous and healthy. Can’t wait to see what happens from here.

    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.
