    Hi All,

    Love the site. Starting a new green house and am refocusing my interest. I am looking for vanillas and leafless. I am also branching out in to the Cat's. Amazing pics on this site! Just a warning, I'll be asking a lot of quetions, I've killed quite a few.

    I may be getting rid of a variegated vanilla in a couple months. I have to figure out if I can get it out of the GH without butchering it.

    They are usually pretty forgiving. How long is it? The stone for my foundation arrives tomorrow. One step closer to my gh.

    Leafless Varigated

    Yo, Forrest -

    I was wondering...

    If there was such a thing as a varigated leafless vanilla - how could you tell?

    I read on another forum about a fellow who wanted to try to grow this in an aquarium! WTF. And people were actually saying oh yeah, go for it. Lol.

    It's vanillas or leafless. There are leafless varieties of vanillas but none that I know that are variegated. I also have a ghost orchid and some chilochistas that are 'leafless'. I'm trying to grow vanilla beans now. Putting in the foundation of the gh this weekend.
