With my own valuation in mind (based on the attorney-verified filing for the 10 months ended October 2010) I think todays action is just the beginning of much more to come.
As quoted below I expect a steady climb to at least $.50 with the audit pending, and then it might practically take off depending on what ground-breaking news the company announce.

OPHI had $1,492,694 in revenues for the 10 months ended October 31, 2010. So lets say the revenues for 2010 could be approximately $1,500,000 conservatively thinking.

With a market capitalization in direct relation to the revenues for instance, that would give us a price per share of:
$1,500,000 / 2,992,501 O/S = ~ $.50 price per share.

While looking at that threshold-list on which OPHI appear, keep these new regulations in mind:

"Regulatory Notice 10-48" go into effect February 28, 2011:
Quote
Regulatory Notice 10-48

Amendments to FINRA Trade Reporting and OATS Rules to Reinstitute Short Sale Exempt Marking and to Require Price and Short Exempt Identifier on Route Reports

Effective Date: November 10, 2010

Executive Summary

The SEC has approved a FINRA rule change that, among other things, reinstitutes the short sale exempt marking category for trade reports to a FINRA trade reporting facility (TRF) or to FINRA’s Alternative Display Facility (ADF) (together, “FINRA Facilities”). The rule change also requires FINRA Order Audit Trail System (OATS) route reports to include price and a short exempt identifier, if applicable. The amendments are effective on November 10, 2010, consistent with the compliance date of the amendments to SEC Regulation SHO.

The text of the amendments are available in the FINRA Manual at FINRA - Rules and Regulations - FINRA Manual Online.

Questions regarding this Notice should be directed to:
FINRA Operations at (866) 776-0800; or
OATS Helpdesk at (800) 321-6273
Racquel Russell, Assistant General Counsel, Office of General Counsel, at (202) 728-8363.

The effective date was extended to February 28, 2011.
(source: FINRA - Regulatory Notice 10-48 )

You can all view the full notice from October 2010 in PDF-format here below:
http://www.finra.org/web/groups/industry/@ip/@reg/@notice/documents/notices/p122254.pdf

From the report it's clear that the upcoming regulations also will apply to stocks trading on the OTC from here on:
Quote
Consistent with these amendments to Regulation SHO, FINRA is reinstituting the
“short sale exempt” marking category in FINRA’s trade reporting rules for over-the-counter transactions in NMS stocks. Thus, firms must indicate on trade reports submitted to a FINRA Facility if a transaction is “short exempt,” consistent with
Regulation SHO.

Look at this comment by Dr. Jim Decosta:
Quote
There’s 3 new laws gaining attention in the NSS market reform arena: FINRA 4320 goes into effect on 2/28/11. It mandates 13 day buy-ins for open delivery failures FINALLY applying to shares of non-reporting corporations. FINRA 2010-043, also starting on 2/28/11 reinstates the “short sale exempt” (SSE) marking requirements for trade reporting and the OATS system. Those MMs accessing the bona fide MM exemption from executing pre-borrows or “locates” before admittedly naked short sales must now FORMALLY acknowledge the accessing of that universally-abused exemption. Being that these trades are theoretically being made to “inject liquidity” then the excuse to hide the related trade data from the public’s eyes goes out the window. You can’t have it both ways and claim the bona fide MM exemption and later claim that the related trade data needs to be kept secret because it might reveal a “proprietary trading strategy”.

Truly bona fide MMs that are able to legally access that universally-abused exemption cover their naked short position on the next downtick after their short sale when buy side liquidity is in need of being ejected as share prices fall. The 3rd new rule which is in effect now states that the offers and bids that MMs post must be of approximately the same size. No longer can the offers be of 1 million shares and the offsetting bid good for the minimum 5,000 shares.

The verbiage in 4320 is especially well done as it FINALLY puts the clearing firms that aid and abet this crime wave on the spot. With the FFETF, which is made up of 25 different agencies, now on the scene the transparency has increased markedly. You can imagine how critical the lack of transparency is to a crime involving selling nonexistent securities and then refusing to ever deliver that which you sold AFTER being allowed access to the funds of the investor being defrauded.

Here are the links to the rules SR-FINRA-2010-028 and SR-FINRA-2010-043:
FINRA - SR-FINRA-2010-028
FINRA - SR-FINRA-2010-043)

Notice this part in particular from the text above:
Quote
"FINRA 4320 goes into effect on 2/28/11. It mandates 13 day buy-ins for open delivery failures FINALLY applying to shares of non-reporting corporations."

Look at the history of Fail-To-Deliver with the old ticker AMSZ (symbol before the reverse merger), obviously there was some NSS going on.

Add 1 + 1 (the history of FTD's, with the current threshold list) and I guess we all could guess a probable scenario here. Anyone heard of the expression "Short Squeeze"?

OPHI on threshold-list for 5 consecutive days now, as per OPHI Organic Plant Health, Inc.: Short Sale Data, Days to Cover for Organic Plant Health, Inc. - OTCMarkets.com
Quote
Date   Reg SHO Threshold Flag
Feb 25, 2011   Yes   
Feb 24, 2011   Yes   
Feb 23, 2011   Yes   
Feb 22, 2011   Yes   
Feb 18, 2011   Yes   

50 reported Fails-to-deliver as per the SEC ( Fails-to-Deliver Data ) when stock traded as AMSZ, a high short-interest for the past months as per FINRA ( February 2011 Reg SHO Daily Files )
And now, after the stock went through a reorganization the new symbol and CUSIP appear on the NASDAQ-threshold list consecutively.

I know the whole "short-story" is way overused with stocks in general, and penny-stocks in particular, but people, think about the new regulations that goes into effect today: FINRA - Regulatory Notice 10-48, and adjust the data here with OPHI to those regulations.

From the OPHI Facebook wall last week, notice the last sentence in bold:
Quote
Organic Plant Health
OPH has had a great week, so much like spring here. A popular product is OPH's JACKHAMMER MAXX. It eases compaction in clay soils and improves soil structure in sandy soils. This great product increases nutrient availability and processing efficiency. The end result... improved soil structure, better root development and improved plant growth. Try it consistently in your lawn - ecom website next week.

Short interest February 28:
Quote
Date|Symbol|ShortVolume|ShortExemptVolume|TotalVolume|Market
20110228|OPHI|8300|0|17760|O
(source: http://regsho.finra.org/regsho-Index.html )

The SSE is active in the new regulations as per http://www.finra.org/Industry/Regulation/Notices/2010/P122255 , and OPHI show apparently 0% such volume, but 46,7% of the total volume is "regular shorting" of the stock.

Yesterday was the first day with this extended data available in public, but remember the current appearance on the Threshold list for several days, and also the history of reported Fails-to-deliver. 13 days buy-in for naked shorted positions is to be applied to OTC-stocks as well as per the regulations from yesterday (February 28).
5 consecutive days on the Threshold list so far, you do the math people.

Current market capitalization with the closing price of $.1201 yesterday in mind is showing a measly $359,400

I get a feeling that the market is awaiting that audit to be finished, but those with some willingness of risk here would see the huge undervaluation when looking at that attorney verified financial report from the period ended October 31, 2010 which shows revenues of $1,492,694
http://www.otcmarkets.com/otciq/ajax/showFinancialReportById.pdf?id=41470

Looking for continued, longterm growth here personally.

Alan Talbert response personally to the ongoing audit;
Quote
"Communicated with auditors last night – the primary hold up is they are waiting on confirmations from 3 A/R customers, 6 A/P vendors and 2 attorneys. This is a process that neither OPH nor the auditors have any control over, really. I’m going to call the hold outs to try to move this along, but ultimately our hands are tied.

The auditor tells me that if they don’t get the remaining confirmations back soon, it’s standard that they would perform alternate tests. He went on to say that once the confirmations are received and they complete their review process of them, things will move much more quickly to finalize the audit.

Wish I could tell you more – but we’ve done all we can do at this point. It’s just a waiting game."

Seems like a solid base here for now with OPHI. Decent bid-support, and not much selling. Just a waiting-game for the audit, new E-commerce and further expansion throughout the US.

Interesting increase in volume here. I suppose many haven't noticed it, but we're actually trading nicely above the average from what we traded the week before the R/S, and also at a higher base this time.

The seven trading days before the symbol change we had an average-volume of approximately 1,400,000 shares traded daily. The price hovered around $.002.
The daily dollar-volume was around $2,800.

The seven days back from todays date, we've had an average-volume of approximately 53,000 shares daily (equal to 2,650,000 shares pre-split) and the current price is hovering around $.12 (equal to $.0024 pre-split measured)
The daily dollar-volume is around $6,300.

Home and Garden Show review 3/05/11:

It was pretty cool; lots of stuff to see. Billy had a packed out speaking session and it was standing room only. Speaking with people it appears there is quite a following through the PBS show and radio show. The majority of people that knew about OPH were also purchasers of the products.
Couple things to note:

- There were numerous landscape companies there and some of them use and recommend OPH products exclusively.
- The formal Q&A had various people asking where the products could be bought and locations.
- The informal Q&A after the presentation was over as even more interesting. People knowing Billy from the radio show brought in soil and plant samples for help and assistance.
Pictures below are titled as best I could to explain them:
