New Vanilla Varieties!

Our new Vanilla Stock plants have arrived! Boy oh boy has it been a challenge to try and find sellers. Many persons who have them, wouldn’t ship to us, but they also refused to tell us their source or supplier, which was incredibly frustrating on our end.
We ended up going retail, and were able to find these three cuttings from Brads Greenhouse , that’s all that was available! We started off with one Planifolia Variegata in much the same way, from Ecouarium last year, and we’ll do it again with our new varieties: please welcome Pompona and Odorata!
As small, 3 node cuttings, these will take time to establish and propagate. But we are excited to have found these few plants, and look forward to offering them for the 2023 season. As with our Planifolia’s, they will be offered as well established plants, and not starter cuttings 🙂

Vanilla Lovers Rejoice!

Vanilla Lovers Rejoice!
Last year we were able to acquire a single stock plant of the yellow variegated variety of vanilla (Planifolia variegata). It takes time to grow, and propagate these beautiful plants, but we had a few available through the pre-order, and they were reserved in record time! Lizz has been scouring the internet, looking for sellers, so that we could have more of these beautiful plants available. We are happy to report we found a seller, and new stock plants have arrived! It will of course take time to establish them, but with the increase in stock plants, there will hopefully be less down time between production and client demand.
We thought this would be an excellent opportunity to showcase the difference between traditional stock plants that are currently available to the Canadian market, and the plants that you receive when you purchase from us. As with our original stock plant, as well as the ones we just received, the plant on the right is typically what you get. A small plant, shipped in moss, but not established. Often a fresh cutting. The plant on the left in the black pot, is what you get if you purchase from us; a healthy, strong plant, that is well established, with bright colours and growing vigorously.
Under Keith’s experience, and wonderful plant care, these new stock plants will soon thrive, and we hope to add them to the availability reservation list soon!
P.S. We might have a few new varieties of vanilla in the works too!
