It’s not just cheap components that are reusable. For example, the identify spell does not state that the 100 gp pearl is consumed: Identify Components: V, S, M (a pearl worth at least 100 gp and an owl feather) Based on that spell, along with Colin D’s answer, components are only consumed if it’s explicitly stated.

However, I would recommend hand waving the spell and saying that since it's a druid spell it can ignore small amounts of components used in other druid spells. That seems to work with RAI. Do not just remove the "Non-living" portion from the spell, as your players will abuse the spell horribly ...

Allow them to carry any spell components, parasites, flower tiaras, and intestinal flora along with them. The RAW aren't exactly silly, but they seem intended to avoid someone melding into stone along with an ally, enemy, victim, or familiar by claiming that they're carrying them as gear. As long as something is CR0 and Diminutive or smaller, it's fine. ...
