Hi all, I don't post over on this end of the forum much, but I need advice from someone who know philos well. Say you found a "golden" variety of a common philo by chance, for really cheap and bought three hoping to sell them. You then find out the same plant same size retails $60 at asiatic. What would you think would be a fair price to start bidding on ebay for a 3.5 in pot?

Thanks

asiatica is overpriced, imo. they do have a nice selection and some of the rarer items, so higher pricing is to be expected.

that said, pricing should be based on the particular variety and how rare or common it is as well as the size of the plant and whether it's an unrooted cutting, a rooted cutting or an established plant.

can you post a pic of what you have - or pm it to me? another group i belong to deals mostly with phil's, so i can get an id for you.

Not the best pictures but you can get an idea. It's label says Philo selloum "Gold". It looks identical to the one Asiatic sells as "Gold Satin" for $60. I am assuming "Gold Satin" is trademarked, so some other name had to be given in order to propagate them.
