Hey all! Does anyone know how to grow or where to buy cuttings of a vanilla bean plant?
Vanilla beans come from a type of orchid. So you might see if there are any orchid growers near you, or any nurseries that sell lots of orchids.
Here ya go! LOL
Australia is getting serious about growing Vanilla Orchids and they will sell cuttings.
Do you have a greenhouse? You may already know that this orchid grows within 20 degrees of either side of the the equator and the bean takes about 9 months to grow and cure off.
Just thinking about it makes me hungry! LOL
I have considered growing vanilla in my home also, not sure how I would support a 30 foot vine *shrug* I am not even sure I could grow it. Most places I have found charges `$10.00 a foot (some less, some more, but this is an average) I want to grow it for vanilla beans.
