You’ve been seeing a big uptick in sports and memorabilia collecting since COVID hit but one thing you probably didn’t know is the collectible plant market has gone crazy too. Everyone thinks of the Dutch Tulip bulb story and its certainly similar in the hard to find plant, especially houseplant market. People are paying thousands of dollars just for an unrooted cutting of some of the hardest to find plants. Plant collecting has been around since the first human walked the earth. Some for food, lately for beauty. Now its rare.
I was trained by my Father to understand price points. What would sell the best at what price but try and maximize profits. Its been a little different for the rare specimens we get in. I’m getting prices I never imagined and they are literally putting it in the cart with no questions asked. Hundreds of dollars for small plants. Plants that took me a while to find and grow and worth the high cost to me but wasn’t sure if customers would agree. Bonsai can fetch four figures. Rare variegated houseplants, same. Even the hosta market is coming back. I bought a William Lachman hosta 15 years ago for $300. Three leaves is all it had. Now its huge. The plant itself is variegated but that comes and goes. Its a very unstable plant. Why is it so expensive? Its seeds produce plants that can be wild. Lots of streaks and colors. It’s one of the best breeding hostas ever. I sell 10 pieces of the plant every year for $30 a piece. Have been for a decade. At year 3 its paid for itself every year.
To me, that’s what’s driving this market. It’s not just the collectibility but the ability to grow and create new plants that can be sold. It’s exactly what I do for a living but on a very small scale. I love seeing it because I enjoy seeing people enjoying plants. They do for fun what I do for a living. Not many jobs that let you do that.
