An incredibly unique plant, the vanilla bean orchid can produce pods from which vanilla flavoring and the extract are derived. With vine-like growth, the vanilla bean orchid will eventually need a vertical support to climb up (or simply allow to trail down). This plant is technically an orchid, so it requires a moderate level of care.
