I have these 3 types of Vanilla together, I have others but I know what those ID's are.
I have 2 I can't seem to put my finger on, the one on the right I know is a Planifolia in pics 1 & 2.
The one to the left and center are the ones I am having issues with.
These are the ones of individual leaf pics in photo 3, 4 and 5 I am having problems finding.
So how good are you at ID'ing vanilla by leaf shape? Thanks for your help ^_^

Nope over 100 types in the family and I have 7.
Vanilla has everything from big huge leafed ones to semi leafed ones to leafless types.
I have two planifolia the normal commercial one and the super varigated, also a semi-leafless, a larger leafed type, a total leafless and these 2 odd ball no named ones. All of which with exception to the planifolia DG doesn't list.
Yea I have been to those sites I just need someone who is good with the Vanilla family in general, the leaf shapes are different but only slightly and I am not good at slight differences.
Some one will know...I will wait ^_^
