I think you may be overpricing the arborescens at that size. A large one(1.5 feet tall) is 250 den or roughly 5 usd. 2 feet is 300 or about 6 usd.

I think the price is fine myself. I haven't seen one here in a 4" pot (or the size the OP is selling--- the height of the plants seems to vary) for less than $5.

....Only plant that size would be IDK fresh propagates. Ive not seen one under 1 foot tall as an established plant. usually they are in larger pots(15cm or 6 inches and above)

Make the arborescens $1. Honestly I have a large arborescens bush near my house, so it doesn't really matter.

I suspect that there may be some differences between what the market can bear price wise between the US and Stefan's locale.

Though that said in CA arborescens is certainly not that hard to come by as in it grows like a weed in many places and has naturalized. Now try to grow that here and by mid summer there are little piles of scorched remains sitting on top of the soil.
It is what it is!

Its not unique to my country. Definetly widespread in ex yugoslavia countries, and also saw it in spain(and maybe france). So its not that uncommon.

I think you missed my point, I was not saying it was uncommon, I was saying that $3 for a 4" arborescens in the US (or whatever it was before Aeonium2003 changed the price), especially in CA, is probably considered no big deal whereas where you are at people (in this case at least you) consider it too much for a plant that as you say is not uncommon.

Not sure how it is in Europe, but here people are asking and paying quite excessive (in my opinion) amounts of money for very small (golf ball sized or less) frequently unrooted offsets of Echinopsis hybrids with fancy flower colors and shapes. Even though generally these plants are easy to propagate (and thus in the long run should not be uncommon) prices upwards of $15 for such a small little plant are being asked and paid both on eBay and Etsy, not including shipping.
Not that long ago you were able to get plants at that size and condition for about $5, and $15 would get you a well rooted flowering size specimen.

To get back to my point, those little offsets are not really worth $15 or more but it is what people on average are willing to pay for it. Ones I see listed at $25 or more at those sizes do not sell, so clearly that is too much to ask.
It is what it is!

Hybrids like that are usually sought after for breeding, if nothing else. Yet pretty sure it was daisy who said something is worth something becuase we give it meaning bla bla bla or something along the lines. Also, e-bay tends to overprice a lot of stuff in general. I once recall a tiny 6-gram piece of pyrite auctioned off for 20 something dollars on e-bay.
Currently plants have been high because of the crisis and inflation and stuff...

Well, i really need to improve my Echinopsis collection. Here in the bay area you can find rooted echinopsis hybrids at big box stores for around $20. Problem is that they are unlabled, and it just says "echinopsis hybrid" or "Trichocereus grandiflora".


ALSO:
I just added epiphyllum oxpetalum to the list!!! Thumbs up

Great job! So far you haven't made a sale but you have started an argument. Rolling on the floor laughing

Maybe you should post this on the Classified or Group Buys Forum

If you don't get any bites, maybe you could try again in the Spring? I'm sure the months of winter cold will have people itching for new plants. nodding

People get that itch from being cooped up all winter and want new plants. Hilarious!
