    Are we allowed to sell plants that ********** doesn't sell, or is this more like a church? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I believe it's trades only, NO exchange of money, like having "no solicitors" in stores (since this IS basically a "commercial" site, thus Phils "store")

    You would probably do better selling on Ebay.

    I believe all the rules are posted/pinned in the Trade Forum. Read them. And it IS a Trade Forum...not a Selling Forum.

    This discussion board is more like a GIFT. It is GENEROUSLY offered and supported by Phil Crane and Exotic Gardens and it cannot become a liability to the business.

    If you owned your own business...would you continue to keep a branch of your business that drained you of customers?

    Most people in this hobby enjoy giving plants and seeds away to help other people out with their collections and for the pleasure "giving" brings.

    the main exceptions ive seen is someone looking to purchase a rare or hard to find plant. i dont think ive seen some one sell anything but i only look at the posts that interest me so take that bit of info at face value. i know ive seen one or two serious growers who were allowed to say they would pay for a extreamly rare sundew
