This vanilla bean orchid is the most widely-grown source for vanilla beans. It's a large vining orchid that's easier to grow than others. It can climb a tree or be twined around a hanging basket. Since this vanilla bean orchid is tropical, it only does well in non-freezing areas. It makes an excellent outdoor plant or houseplant.
