Have your plants bloomed at all? Got any pics?

I have two, and one has bloomed a couple times but I have not found the blooms until they are spent, because I am very negligent in checking them.  I think they are so shy to bloom because in my greenhouse they are in a shadier part and I can't really move them.  They both have huge mats of roots under the bark floor.

Here are pics of the plants, no pics of the blooms, sorry.

One is growing up the concrete "tree" that my parrots nest in. One nest box (the blue door) is totally blocked off, hence the pruning.  The second one is growing up a 2x4 trellis.

They are both about 14 years old.

Iím very impressed that you are growing vanilla in Boise!  I used to live in Idaho Falls and struggled with gardening around the weather events there.

Well, it helps if you have a zone 10-12 greenhouse! Costs more to heat than our house... 
We have often joked about turning the house into an Air BnB and just moving into the greenhouse. ;D
