I have some rooted cuttings vanilla planifolia Bourbon, I can sell them for 12$ including shipping.
Can send them without soil.

Thank you for the offer.  If possible I would like to order from inside the US so I dont have to deal with customs.  I'll definitely keep you in mind if I can't find them anywhere else

Someone on FB marketplace in Palm Bay was selling this past month, I think theyíre still listed.  I was thinking about getting some, but just kinda felt like by the time I spend $20 for a cutting, I could probably eventually come across a rooted plant from nursery.  Idk though, havenít looked into it too much - I think atree4me in Sebastian has carried potted plants in the past, likely from Pine Island as I think thatís where most their edible inventory ships in from.

Nice!  If it does great for you, may ask pretty please for some cuttings next year. :) :)

Iím just a bit N of you in Indialantic.

Hoping those rains pick back up again, this intense sun without the afternoon showers is not helping my plantings right now.

Just moved to Florida from NY... trying to get my hands on anything and everything. In dire need of some Madagascar Vanilla was wondering what the price would be?

Just got done potting up my 2 extremely large Vanilla cuttings from FLnative aka Frank. They look great!

In addition he sent me a handful of each Lemondrop Mangosteen, Superior Lemondrop Mangosteen and Red Jaboticaba. All very delicious! Thank you for the opportunity to add to my collection and the chance to taste new fruits!

As an orchid collector (North of 400) the Vanilla Orchid you want is native the Central East Coast of FL. The Vanilla genus has roughly 100 species and mine in Davie FL. has plenty of flowers and never been pollinated. I do remember seeing something, somewhere that the U. of Florida is working to make a cash crop out of vanilla plantifolia.

Vanilla phaeantha is one of the natives that produces edible pods. I've never seen them for sale though, and Vanilla plantifolia seems to be a pretty common plant at plant sales. A hybrid between the two would be pretty neat.

Very cool, are you growing any of the natives?  I just joined FL native orchid FB group, would like to eventually catch some safely propagated (not poached from wild) plants or cuttings.  I will probably try my hand at the commercial Vanilla plantifolia first though as I have no experience growing orchids.
