Well lets say you are a wholesale grower in Florida with one or  two large
commercial size  greenhouses, and you have a customer base of 100 stores.
Each store can buy a dozen java ferns every two weeks. You stock 20 to 30
different species of plants. Would you sell your mother java ferns for say
$15 to $20 to the stores, or break each plant into 20 smaller plants to fill
your orders and make several times as much money? What would be the best use
of your limited resources?
