Based on these google images: https://goo.gl/mThQJi and these pictures from a guy that sells them: http://www.teakfarmer.com/teakplantsforsale.html yours look similar, but I don't know much about it. Very cool to see the updates, keep them coming...

As best I can tell, they are selling theirs for 1.50 USD, and this man was selling for 20 cents. However, the one here in Togo were very small. This whole project is dynamic, trying to understand how to connect all the dots. What is great is the number of problem, the more problems, the less competiti Thanks for finding the page and photos.

No problem.

Yeah the price wasn't competitive. I think what he is selling as "teak plants in bags" on the website (theres a picture on the left side of page) look to be pretty small too and he he's still getting 7 times what you've found...

Thats the frontier market advantage for you, more problems to overcome, but much bigger margins if you can overcome. Keep up the good work.

i have been an entrepreneur all my life, and what makes this project idea is that I do not have to live in a place I do not want to be. I am always laughing cynically when people want me to make money living is a horrible location. Live in hell, and make money, the way to success. LOL, too stupid to understand how to be happy, to busy chasing money.
