Interesting.

My vanilla bean plant seems to have disappeared - it never did thrive.

I'm hoping to use Pandan instead once I get my head around the idea of cropping those green leaves to add to milk dishes :S

Vanilla orchids are tropical I believe so growing them here could be tricky. They need hand pollinating too.

My vanilla bean is growing terrifically, I can almost watch it.  Will have to see how it does over winter though.  I think one plant would be ok to hand pollinate and then the harvest and process thing although I was reading that you can get up to 100 beans off one plant. 

Hope it continues to thrive Vanessa. Great that you are having success - what sort of area have you planted it in? Full sun...part shade...rich soil etc?
