Ya...seeing alot of these popping up in trade since you listed yours. Don't really understand who would pay that much for some stems that will be $1-5 in a few weeks. I guess PT Barnum was right...there really are suckers born every minute!
LOL when i saw that people actually bought it I just snorted. It's going to be like the hygrophila pinnatifida craze, 40 dollars a stem one week and a couple dollars next week.
only slow growing difficult plants can keep a stable market. and of course troublesome plants that are hit or miss like pogostemon helferi
some plants hold their value, stem plants don't seem to. Ludwigia tornado was $50 a stem last year.
If only we were able to get tropica plants in the states
Some still are charging a lot for it.
I tend to keep the pricing up, but as demand wanes, I tend to add more stems to the boxes for the same price. That and I tend to get pretty good at growing the plants so they get really nice stuff. If you are simply trying to flip plants, well..........that's a tough business.
