    Could you maybe take a picture on a more natural background without the shadow? Also if it is wet or covered with slime would it be possible to dry it off?

    The "wetness" makes me think erwinia.

    There is no slime. There is a disease to be cured. I cut the apex of the vanilla.
    What pesticide can I use? Is a bacterium or a fungus ? What can I do ?
    Thanks.

    molex823, without a clear picture of the problem it is very hard to help you. In the 1st image it appears that the plant is wet or covered in slime and that it has rotted to the point that you can see through areas on the leaves and the stem. In the second image it appears that we can see the joint in the glass blocks through one of the leaves. Is that your problem? Did you check erwinia as Ray suggested?

    Yes. Looks like erwina. You can drench the plant with a bactericide or Physan 20 or Hydrogen peroxide.

    Try to increase the air circulation around your plant as well. Very moist, stagnant air is an open invitation for this type of rot.
