I know your in the US so might be different for me but I need to get rid of a few vft divisions once they are a bit larger to make room for new clones in my collection just don't know if I could sell them very easily.
I wouldn't know lol, I've never tried to sell. Im looking to start however. Just from observation though, it appears like anything else. If you have a plant that is desirable and uncommon, it'll move right away. Things like a capensis probably won't unless you do them for like 3 bucks or 2 for -price-
If you have divisions from a cultivar, I'm sure you could do well to post it on here for uk people or the uk carnivorous plant forum. I've seen a lot of things move on this forum. Binatas and the like as well. Most of my stuff are pinguiculas that I've propped when I received the plants. I think size is a factor not only on price but if it's wanted. For instance, I got a ping from california carnivores a couple weeks ago which was a real disappointment. Had I known it was little more than a rooted cutting I wouldn't have even bothered. The plant was dying back to the crown and the leaves it had were done.
Facebook is actually a good option too. Purging groups or CP groups have people selling plants all the time as well. Set a price and see how they do.
Today I will do what others won't so tomorrow I can do what other's can't.
