Vanilla planifolia is likely the most popular orchid, and many people don't even realize it IS an orchid!
This species has a wide habitat range, from Mexico down through Central and South America. Vanilla is a vining epiphyte that must be grown against a trellis or similar upright support. Once the plant begins to climb, aerial roots will begin to search for the ground. Mature plants will have green and white blooms in sequential clusters.
Plants offered are young starter plants with good roots. Currently in 2.5" pots and approximately 8"-10" tall.
These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. Because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.
