vanilla orchid pollination
Has anyone mastered the technique of vanilla orchid pollination? Last year, I had 3 vanilla orchid stalks with numerous flowers, and faithfully went out every morning to attempt pollination, using some tips I found on the internet. Of all the blossoms, I had two take, with one bean pod falling off the vine after a few months. The other one is still there. Anyone have any words of wisdom? The plants are very healthy, so I know it's my technique, or lack thereof.
