    I get $25/flat if I have to buy them and pick them up. If there is a quantity (10 or more) I'll drop the price a bit, but never lower than $21/flat.

    TG set the rate in our area for commericial properties and it is $25 per flat. That includes some plant mix, fertilize, snail/pest control and ongoing care for the duration of the plant until change out. Actually we don't make hardly anything on flower but it is a most on most upscale commericial properties.
