    Vanilla is one of the very few useful plants among the orchids and as such was already described by Hernando Cortez, the conqueror of Mexico, in the 16th century as a spice for the cocoa drink reserved for the ruler there. All species are climbing plants, some of which grow very vigorously. Blossoms must be pollinated if they are to bear fruit. Lay out the ripe capsules in a dry place. Soon the whole room will smell like vanilla!
