Vanilla grows best under filtered sunlight. It flourises well in partial shade that cuts out about 50% sunlight. Since it is a climbing vine, it requires support for growing. Dead wood posts, few species of Erythrina, Plumeria alba and Glyricida are suitable standards for trailing vines. The crop is established by planting in situ shoot cuttings of 60-100cm length. After pollination, a full length bean is attained in six weeks time which in turn takes 6 months to reach full maturity. Under reasonable levels of management , Vanilla yields about 100 gms cured beans per plant.
