I have more or less settled on the pricing model that the limiting factor in my greenhouse is floor space. So items get priced based on how much room they take up in the greenhouse and for how long. For example, I can put 12 six-packs into a flat, and sell them for $1.50 ($18 per flat). Or I can put 25 of my favorite size pot into a flat and ask $1 per pot ($25 per flat). These are older plants, and thus have been in the greenhouse a few weeks longer. After a plant has been in the greenhouse long enough that it needs a 3.5" pot, then I'm bumping the price up to $2 per pot, ($36 per flat), because they have been occupying the greenhouse for twice as long, and preventing me from growing other things that take less time. The floor-space model of pricing more or less corresponds with the time/materials model that I originally adopted.
