I have no problem with a plant being mass produced even if most of them die. The life of an individual plant in this situation is of little consequence. Certainly not equal with the life of one in situ from a survival of the species point of view. I can rattle a half dozen species of tropical fish off the top of my head that are completely extirpated and exist solely in aquaria. Suitable habitat no longer exists, due to either destruction, or more often introduced species. If hobbyists and fish farms didn't churn out these fish they'd be gone.
