Yeah, The reason it's so expensive is that the spice you buy are the stigma of the flower. Imagine, dredging through a field of crocus , pulling the 2-3 little stigma from each plant and trying to fill even the smallest sack . But the plant is beautiful imo.
I want to get a start of this too so if you guys get any......
