I'm having a church sale this weekend and selling some of my Plumeria plants and I needs some Ideal what the cost is on 2 gallon plants and they are very grown tall and 10 gallon plants that also are grown very large. The plant's that they come from are (2) 8 to 9 ft tall and that's standing in a very large pots . They bloom pink and white flowers and they are so beautiful when they are all in bloom.

Need answer ASAP!!!!!
Thanks Texas, Pas

Welcome I tip my hat to you. Glad you found us.

Large plants like that sound pretty special. Hopefully someone from your area will chime in with an answer for you but in the meantime some things to consider are whether plumeria are easily available or somewhat rare in your part of Texas. Can you visit a nursery and get an idea of what they might charge for one? It will help if you fill in the specific part of Texas where you live. It can be done on your profile page. Plumerias might be priced differently along the Gulf coast than they would in other parts of the state.

Alice made some good points above re how easily they are accessible to folks in your area. Also having named varieties vs. NOIDs will typically allow you to charge more. Florida Colors is a well known nursery that's been in business for some time. this will show you what they price theirs at. Do note like most items, folks will not pay near the same amount at a yard sale/church sale locally as they would from a registered nursery.

Good luck with your pretties!!!
What would YOU attempt if you KNEW you wouldn't fail?

Hi Lillian,
Welcome, glad you joined. I'm near you in Sugar Land. Last July the Plumeria Society of America/Houston had a sale and show at the Fort Bend Fairgrounds, and there were many vendors selling various plummies from a cutting to large pots.
Google the society and they may be able to get in touch with the vendors.
