VANILLA
Supports

In cultivation the vanilla is trained to a height which will facilitate hand pollination and harvesting. The ideal support for vanilla are Jatropha curcas and Gliricidia sepium. They are both used as cuttings and are highly recommended as they are excellent grip for vanilla plant and strong enough to support strong winds. Above trees are most commonly used in Madagascar and both propagation from cuttings and seeds grow rapidly.

As shown in the photo, Gliricidia sepium (pink flowers) stems are planted directly into the soil and from the cutting on the top, thin shoots and low branches coming up to form light and provide partial shade. Seeds are available for sale.
