Overpriced seeds?

by Sakaaaaa » Mon Dec 04, 2017 11:19 am

Someone on Indo-eBay (not the real name of course) is selling the FTS red mix seed for about $1...
PER SEED!
Is this overpriced? Lots of people here sell seeds per seed and I dont know why. I know that this guy is a real seller and does not do fakes (Not like that one that sold orchid seeds in packets of 5 or the lavender VFT guy).

fly trap store has seeds for $12.95 for 15 seeds. that's almost $1 per seed. I would think premium - maybe all red -seeds are more expensive than typicals. that said, I got a few really cool babies from fts seeds that are about 3 to 4 months old that definitely have high quality traits, even so young.

I'm sure someone could get a better deal for seeds if they bought a bunch and afford to sell for $1 each. that's expensive though if I can get some free from the seed bank or my own plants.
I saw where you can get 500 vft seeds from BCP for roughly $45. i'd have to grow fly traps full-time for all that.

Oh, so I guess they're OK priced. I didn't know VFT seeds were expensive!

Can’t get all red flytraps from seed though, so I would be wary.

$1 per seed is what I'd consider appropriate-ish unless in bulk if I were buying them from a vendor. if I were buying from an individual that just happens to sell seeds from their plants - I'd expect the price to be less usually.

THe only reason I have not ordered from FTS is because I'm Indonesia and I'm afraid my orders are going to get confiscated!
