Has anyone successfully grown a vanilla orchid outdoors in a zone similar to mine? I just received a small (5-6" long) Vanilla planifolia and plan to grow it in my enclosed patio where it will receive filtered light and be protected from the colder weather.
From my reading, it seems like overwatering may be the biggest danger. They seem to like a fast-draining soil mix and misting on their aerial roots. But I'd welcome any tips!
