This is a discussion on Vanilla Planifolia - Smallest seedling ever! within the **NOT IN BLOOM** All Genera forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; I waited for 20 days (!) for this seedling (appr. 2") to arrive from UK. ...
I waited for 20 days (!) for this seedling (appr. 2") to arrive from UK. I've been giving it some TLC and now I realise that this grows pretty fast for an orchid.
Well it's gonna take 2-3 years to bloom so...I'll be in touch
I agree- the vanilla vines in our greenhouse at school grew...well, like vines!! haha That will be a fun orchid to have...you'll have to pollinate it and wait the 9 months to get your very own vanilla bean :-)
they grow fast and can get very big!!
What a cute, innocent looking little baby. :-)
The little suckers will take over a small tree in a heartbeat. LOL
Now you're starting to scare me! Should I grow it in a cage?
Maybe it's own greenhouse - if it grows that big then a cage won't hold it. Not if we are talking birdcages!
It'll get its own place when it turns 18 and that's final.
I thought about getting one once, but I have seen posts where some have had these for more than 10 years without a bloom.
