Vanilla imperialis - thick stemmed almost leafless, from Thailand
 Vanilla sp.
Family: Orchidaceae
Vanilla Orchid
Origin: tropical America, tropical Asia, West Africa
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantSpice or herbAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

This genus of vine-like plants has a monopodial climbing habitus. They can form long thin stems with a length of more than 35 m, with alternate leaves spread along their length. The short, oblong, dark green leaves of Vanilla are thick and leathery, even fleshy in some species. But there are also a significant number of species that have their leaves reduced to scales or have become nearly or totally leafless and appear to use their green climbing stems for photosynthesis. Long and strong aerial roots grow from each node.

Most Vanilla flowers have a sweet scent.

Family: Bromeliaceae

Bromeliad
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftShadeSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterPink flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

The Vriesea family is a very popular and easily cultivated bromeliad. The genera can be divided into two groups. One is grown for there impressive foliage and the other for their colorful bracts and flowers.They range in sizes from a very tiny 10 cm to more than 2 metre in diameter and height. The bright flowering group are very colorful and have long lasting flowering displays. The foliage group have striking foliage markings and colors and are symmetrically vase shaped to hold water in their neat rosettes. The long flower spike is camouflaged with the foliage markings and extends dominantly above the foliage. It prefers medium light and "good" water, that is, water without salts. The use of bottled drinking water, rain water, or filtered sink water is best. Be careful not to expose it to temperatures in the 30 F. See Bromeliad page.
