    Rules of the plant trade

    What is always, absolutely, invariably true for all plant suppliers?

    I'll start



    The more something is advertised as "giant", the smaller the available plants will be.

    The red form is always more expensive.

    The more something is hyped as being "rare", the more common it will be.

    make sure you know if its being shipped bare root(less expensive) or potted(more expensive)

    always contact them directly to see if they have more rare specimines availiable.

    only do buiseness with well recommended suppliers

    and ALWAYS note what the shipping price is! if you get one plant. a small one. shipping should NOT be 9$

    I think this was supposed to be a humorous thread

    The only way capensis can be sold is by adding "RARE" or "BONZI MAN EATING TREE OF MADAGASCAR" to it in all caps followed by 25 exclamation points.

    *note the purposeful misspelling of "bonsai"

    Ya I agree the only way to sell capensis on ebay is in bulk.
    Really though $8 for a packet of 10 seeds ?!

    If more than 20% of the stock plants have pitchers, the price goes up 50% and "LOTS OF PITCHERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" is written under a picture of a mature plant.
