So. Here's an update but first to explain. I moved from the UK in November 2018 to warmer climates. Since then the vanilla micro-plantation has been left in the very safe and capable hands of my Momma bee. My first student at the Clarence Vanilla Micro-Plantation School of Orchid Science. Momma bee takes her shit seriously. Kinda student becoming the teacher style.
So here below is her record of flowers on each raceme on each plant. Broken down to those that flowered, at what time the attempted pollination was and if it was successful.
Momma bee loves her spreadsheets

Cheers Momma bee and hope you guys like the info

Cheers
C.

So when the flower is successfully pollinated it closes up but stays connected to the raceme. Once the ovary stretches and starts to swell it stays attached. Unsuccessfully pollinated flowers fall off within a few days.

Some of the latest pods maturing. After several weeks the flower heads do dry up and fall off.

Thanks man. Appreciate the kind words.

Not growing them here yet but it's on my list of things to do. Just importing the vines is a bit more difficult where I am now.

One of my favourite pictures of the raceme buds forming with happy sap dripping out.

Happy sap is exactly what it sounds like. Shows the plants are happy.

Tastes sugary.

Some science shit.

Manual hand pollination of the flowers. Its a shame you need to rip the petals apart but hey-ho. Sacrifices must be made.
