    Was watching a gardening show on tv some days ago and they say these vanilla vines starts to flower when they are about 8 feet long.....I wonder if that is true....would be cool though to just harvest your own vanilla pods

    The one I saw in Dallas was over 15 ft. long. It was going up and all over the place. I didn't ask "how" fast or slow it was growing...LOL! Betty :-)
