Large java fern fair asking price???

Hey, I've never sold any of my plants, but this clump of java fern is way too big for my 20 gal high. It's attached to a rock, so what do you guys think would be a fair asking price and how would I ship it without the rock rolling and crushing the plants? The measuring tape in the photos is 6"

I have never shipped any plants but from what I have read here on the forum, you wrap the leaves in wet paper towels. I would then encase the rock & plant in styrofoam to keep it immobile during shipment. ---sort of like putting a plaster-of-paris cast on a broken arm. Custom fit two haves of styrofoam & duck tape them together with the plant and rock inside. Should work---I think. Save the plant for me and I'll give you $5.00 for it. It's gorgeous.
Thanks for the reply. I actually dropped it off last night at a LFS for two larger portions of nana petite. I will use your idea of the styrofoam for my next java fern batch. From about three plants I have gotten so much java fern its not even funny. This stuff grows without even trying! Put em in a window and they take off!
