First time I've done it so it's all new and eye opening to me too. Fortunately I had around six years of growing the vanilla vine to investigate before I got my first flowers. Thankfully it's all worked out well so far.

Awesome thread m8! Have over 150 orchids scattered around with at least 10 vanilla. (Also have about 10 vials of flasked seeds sitting in fridge) So tough catching the flowers during the 6 hours when open, but very fun to pollinate when I catch them open... my mother in law takes care of all the curing as I don’t have the patience for the process! Nice to see somebody else interested in vanilla. Very detailed grow and cure report so far. Not only the only fruiting orchid but also the only vine orchid. The process of hand pollinating (I think only 1 specific bee will pollinate in wild) along with the cure process is the reason real Vanilla is so expensive... almost impossible to do on a commercial scale. Nice work lad!

Thanks mate. It's certainly been satisfying the whole process. Can't wait to taste the result. I don't know what climate you are in but I am in the UK. It's not done with ease.

I believe it is the Melipona bee, stingless bee, found in Mexico where vanilla originates from.

That’s the one. Growing conditions where I am are tie to tree and pay no attention until flower pods appear. Lucky in that way

This would have been nice indeed. Maybe I need to move to Madagascar.

Here is my curing chest in progress. Has a heat bar, thermostat, fan, mister and a hygrostat. Just waiting on some trays to use as shelving. Vanilla is currently sitting at 70% RH and 34°C. After 24hrs the difference in aroma is incredible.

It should do yes. The temp and humidity are fully adjustable. I'm thinking of putting a small extractor fan in the side too.
