That's amazing...it looks just like a vanilla pod. I first saw one in Edinburgh botanic gardens and until then I didn't know that vanilla is an orchid. I suppose it is the only one with a culinary use...but yours looks amazing, and hopefully you'll get viable seed. :)

Thans Karen, I did have a vanilla when I had my collection i my younger days, they should be viable I did quite a good cross with my others, the only down side is it can take a minimum of 5-6 years before flowering.

It looks like a piece of crystal artwork, mate.
Having said that, the work you've put in to it makes it a work of art.
Nice one, Surreylad.

(Again, Mouldy looks around)
Help, I'm still blind & can't see!
(Mouldy staggers off to another page in search of Motinot, in order to reclaim his, Mouldy's own, identity.) Lol.

Lol sorry that's twice now, I must go take my meds ;-)

Too late, Surreylad, have already scoffed your meds, 'cos of identity crises.
Least, I think it was me...might have been Motinot. Lol. %-}

The other downside is the science involved in germinating them! Respect for taking this one on!
