Do you mean how do you attach the price or what prices are we charging?
Since most of our plants are divisions donated by members, 2 gallon pots of
the same plant might not look as good and are not priced the same.  And 2
excellent lloking pots of different plants might go for different prices if
one were more in demand, or we had less of one than the other.  It's an SOP
sort of thing.
We have a colored price chart and use colored tags to designate the most
common prices.  Like an orange tag might be $3, a red $4, a blue $5.  For
higher priced items for which we have no color, we use white and write the
price on it.  The cashiers collect the color and white tags from the pots,
add them up and keeep them.  The name of the plant is on a cut piece of
These colored tags are 6 inches long and come on a roll of 1000 perforated
for about $18.  Since they're used over and over, the investment doesn't
amount to much.
