A Floral Frenzy II

The splendid flower from afar has fascinated all and sundry, to the point that owning one has become a potent status symbol. There is, in consequence, a drive to breed ever-more spectacular new varieties. By chance, a mosaic virus causes single petals to be comprised of multiple colors. Interest in the flower reaches fever pitch. In turn, prices for stocks of its bulbs reach ludicrous levels as speculators buy then resell them for great profits. Is regulation required before this frenzy destroys too many livelihoods – or is there a way to turn it to your own advantage?
