Hi,
I travel a lot and sometimes it's difficult for me to find someone to take care of some of my more sensitive plants. I was thinking there could be some kind of a service that could connect people who need their plants taken care of and people who'd be willing to do this. What do you think? Would you be willing to let someone else take care of your plants while away? Or would you be willing to do it for a price?

I believe there are services for this and for me it would depend on how important your plants are. Mine are just plants so when I go away and someone kills one/some, I always tell them, it's just a plant.

We have concierge-type services in this area where you can hire someone to do pretty much any personal task needed, including watering plants while you are gone. I no longer travel, but usually paid family members to come stay at my house to take care of dogs and plants while I was away.
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
