Question Selling Plants Question

Hi! I was wondering what I would have to do to sell plants. I am in Washington state, and everywhere I look, there is no helpful information. I do not want to have to pay for licenses, and I want to try to take any loophole if there are any XD. Thanks for the help!

if you're looking to buy plants from a distributor and sell them on a website or eBay you'll need a business license. there's no way around that. doing that without a license would be illegal (not sure about Washington state but pretty sure it is) if you just want to sell trimmings you can sell them on the sell forum or advertise them on Instagram or Facebook. I know a bunch of people who will sell cuttings on their Instagram account every so often without having an actual business.

you can sell any plants on here using the " For Sale/Trade" forum under members forums that you want.. it really isn't illegal to sell plants you bought wholesale without a license as much as it is illegal for a wholesaler to swell them to you.. ANY aquarium , reparium, pond plants you want to sell on here you can just go here to make your thread. Pictures help a lot and be sure to name your plants correctly or people will A) give ya a hard time about it and B) be put off by your sale thread... one sale thread per 30 days for a non premium user in the for sale/trade forum.
