    What do you think of those plants? the Angrecum Erectum suffered a bit because it was sent to me in a box, but it has a nice white flower I think! The vanilla planifolia, do you think I have to repot it?? it is in a little plastic black vase.... what should I do to keep this plant healthy? In one photo I show a root of the vanilla, it is very long but I don't understand if it has a bud or is just another root growing, what do you think??

    The vanilla is probably not budding yet - it can take 5 to 7 years to mature to the point it will flower for you. And it gets HUGE. You'll definitely need to be able to support it.

    Hey, Sam - I couldn't help but admire some of the lovely objects you have on your shelves and wall. What an interesting collection!

    That vanilla orchid would appreciate a wider screen to grow on. It will wrap around a square screen and look beautiful.

    cheers,
