Vanilla planifolia 'Super Variegated'-also known as the Vanilla Orchid is a rare orchid that is responsible for the vanilla flavoring that we all know and love. This is a variegated version and more rare than the green version Vanilla Orchid. The Vanilla planifolia is native to Mexico and Guatemala and can now be found in many tropical and subtropical regions throughout the world. Vanilla planifolia prefers bright, filtered light and warm temperatures. They also like humidity. Vanilla planifolia will bloom only after a minimum of two years, and only when it reaches a length of thirty feet or more. It only blooms once a year and the blooms must be hand pollinated quickly as they only stay open for less than one day. 

 

USDA Hardiness Zone 10-11

 

Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

Vanilla planifolia "Super Variegated' would make an interesting houseplant in its younger, smaller version. It can outgrow a home after a few years unless pruned to keep a manageable size. It is not recommended to use Vanilla planifolia in a small container or terrarium. Plant Vanilla planifolia 'Super Variegated' in sphagnum moss when young. As it gets older, plant in a mix of orchid bark, soil and peat. Provide support as the plant grows as it will send out air roots that will look for something to grab on to in order to support itself.

 

Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.

 

Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

Vanilla planifolia 'Super Variegated' can be happy in vivariums as it enjoys humidity and warmth but it will need some air movement or circulation. Make sure the roots are not sitting in water as the plant will quickly rot. Vanilla planifolia 'Super Variegated' in a vivarium will need occasional pruning to keep it a manageable size or it will quickly out grow its location.

 

As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants from Josh's Frogs are treated only with products that are OMRI Listed© for use in organic production. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.
