    it looks like a very healthy plant. How big is it and how long did it take to flowering? Every so often I see a cutting of this for sale, but they say it grows quite big and needs heat, so i haven't bought any because i have no space and it gets too cold here... I will have to enjoy this through your posts Ana. Vanilla does have a beautiful flower.

    Do you pollinate the flowers to make the vanilla beans?

    Hi Ana! Very beautiful plant and bloom. I read that the blooms only occur at the ends of the vine. Is that true? I would like to know if you pollinate to make the beans too.

    When he came home had almost a year and about four meters long.

    Flourished for nearly three years of age I have divided three times so now only 12 to 15 meters. They are fast growing.


    It is a tropical species, thrives well in temperatures between 20 and 32 ° C, day and night. No, I do not even try
    artificial pollination
