|Nematanthus 'Cheerio' for small pots|
How much should small plants for Miniature Gardens cost?
It depends on whether you are buying or selling.
The price system solves this question. Sellers go for the highest price that keeps them in business for the short-run and keeps you coming back in the long- term. Buyers go for the lowest price that can be found for the perceived quality desired.
Sellers worry about the cost of production. Buyers don’t care what it costs to produce; only how much they are willing to pay.
The plants are in 2” to 3” pots. My ‘Mini’ plants have been selected for being compact or miniature so they are proportional to the accessories in Miniature Gardens. The correct plant that can be the tree form or bush-like or a ground-cover can be valuable for its intended use.
Rarely, are they two or three dollars. Some places get five.
Mostly, they are $4.00
