    Triffid Park does not wholesale.
    Next order to Triffid or to Exotica and I will get some Royal Red and maybe some other varieties. Triffids stock changes around, and not everything available as plants is available in TC.

    HEHE you need to read the details for folks buying from them internationally. The phytosanitary certificate alone is 120 AUS.. plus the minimum order of 100 AUS in plants. So right there you are at 220 aus minimum plus shipping.

    Not that I agree with minimums ( that is why I will NEVER do it/them). Some places feel that they have to make it "worth their time" to do something.
    I know I am not adding conversation...I am just venting. = )
    People need to have access to these plants ( and all other things).

    Personally I think it's a different ball game if you have minimums for international orders vs domestic orders. Or wholesale vs retail. With international orders it's quite conceivable that it would cost more in time and effort to do the paperwork than you can make in profit on a single plant. Especially if you have to pay an employee. Sometimes in business Time is Money.. and Money is what keeps the business going.

    But ya know...

    We have shipped 1 plant to Canada...We have shipped 1 plant to Indoneisa....We have shipped a few plants to Japan.
    Anyway...
    Sometimes it is not about 'making money'. We have 4 people that work here ( not on a regular basis...but they come in and help when needed). They get paid whether we ship to Arkansas or Canada.
    In this world, I (if alone) want to make people happy. ( and I know that I am the loud minority ).
    People deserve the right to get the things that they want. And if some one oveseas wants 1 common flytrap...well then ...I am willing to do ( I just wish that other places....that started off small too at one time....do the same). I think that big business losses fact of what made them big...the little guy!

    I am done.. I am sorry...Certain things just create a spark in me and I feel that if things aren't said. People do not know where you stand. =/
    This is by no means a nasty tone ( for those trying to figure it out.) This is merely a 'speech' if you will. Applause at the end will be welcome.

    O I am just debating!

    Yes sometimes it is not about making money, but to make people happy. Unfortunately too much of that and you might end up telling the bankruptcy court.. "but I made them happy!"
