Default Price of tissue cultured bananas

Dear members,

After experimenting and getting a protocol together i'm about to start taking orders for tc propagated banana. Musa velutina to be precise. however i have not the least idea how much i could ask for. So i'm opening this new thread dedicated to the value of the banana varieties we propagated with blood sweat and tears. so I and other propagators will have an estimate of the worth and can try to get away with as much as we can for our labor!

So the questions are: how much per piece did you pay or did you receive per how many number of tc propagated banana plantlets...

This is the one resource i'm missing on this forum (unless i'm blind and really missed the thread)

regards

Dave
Amsterdam

Nope. Macro-propagation of babaco is very quick and easy.

I think we have to keep in mind agristarts must TC thousands of plants and that is why they are so cheap per plant, economy of scale and all that.

If you're talking about a few TC plants to sell to hobbyists like us then it has to be the cost of the equipment and chemicals plus your time which will be considerable.

It has to be in the region of 7 - 10 euros/pounds/dollars per plant. I'd be willing to pay that for something rare like a musa rubinea or similar. :-)

splitting flats is when you get 2-4 different varieties in a flat. So you have to get a minimum of 18 of a variety for a total of 72 plants in a tray.

Ante,
Agri Starts has a minimum order of one tray with 72 plants. They are saying of only one varierty, but after asking kindly for sending me two trays with up to 10 different varieties, it was no problem.
I made two orders, but that was 5 and 6 years ago.

I'm sure they would ship to Europe you'll just have to pay for a phyto certificate. If you can find a market for the 70 odd plants you'll have left over then you could make a bit of money.

Might be worth asking in the European section if anyone wants to go in with you.
