Vanilla Bean Plant Pollination
Vanilla Bean Plants are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Vanilla Bean Plant will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: For the best results, use well-draining soil and choose a location with filtered sunlight for your plant. An east-facing window is ideal.
Select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, use organic soil, and place your plant in its pot. Keep the humidity up around the plant by setting it on a water-filled pebble tray in its early stages. A light misting with a water bottle in the evenings is great for a more mature plant.
2. Watering: Water once weekly with warm water until it comes out of the bottom of your pot. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 inches down.
3. Fertilizing: Potted plants need to be fertilized every two weeks during the growing season with a low concentration of fertilizer. The best results come from using a formula like 10-10-10 or an orchid fertilizer.
FGT Pro Tip: to ensure bean pods hand pollinate the flowers with a small paintbrush. For best results pollinate the flowers within six hours of opening by using the paintbrush to spread the pollen around in the center of the flower.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- vanilla bean plant
came healthy and looks nice
The plant was larger than I expected
I bought this because I have a grow room in my basement with grow lights. I thought that this plant would be a great addition. As it does not need full sun I have it in an area just outside of the main grow area. The plant was much bigger than expected and seems to be doing well.
It was great !! Plant arrived healthy and strong !!
