Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest

Enjoy some meditative greenery and cultivate your own bonsai tree forest with this kit.

$50.00

Personal Forest

Bring the essence of nature and meditative relaxation to your life with this engaging bonsai kit. It contains everything you need to cultivate a grove of miniature trees that you foster along, from seedling to bonsai forest—redwood and moss seeds, growing medium, seedling training pots, bonsai shears, river stones, detailed directions, and a recycled US steel grow box.

These tiny trees are actually ancestors of the giant California redwood. Called Dawn redwoods, they were thought to be extinct until the 1940s, when one was discovered growing in a rice field in central China. And even though its towering relative is an evergreen, the Dawn redwood is one of only two known deciduous conifers. In the fall, their leafy needles turn from green to yellow to copper, bringing the pageant of the changing seasons to your desk or kitchen window. Kit made in Idaho.

The idea was fabulous, but we tried a couple of times and nothing ever seemed to grow, a year later and I think we've given up...disappointing.

Best bought around summertime

Comments about UncommonGoods Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest:

Was a little disappointed that most of the seeds did not sprout. Of the ones that did, they all died. My boyfriend followed all the given directions, but after a couple months, the 4 seeds that sprouted have all died. I think it's just because the plant wasn't able to receive proper sunlight since they were planted in the winter. They were placed under a room with lots of light but it didn't seem to do the job. Maybe if they were planted later, they wouldn't have died.

Service and delivery comments:

Some of the seeds had fallen out onto the box when the package was delivered.

This gift was sent directly to my mom so I did not assess the product myself. But it's a unique idea and a great gift for many.

      For the price of this kit I expected so much more. The picture shows actual plants, not seeds and a tin pot. I bought this as a gift and I feel bad for giving it. All of the seedlings have died. I feel ripped off.

        The seeds simply didn't grow. We had three out of 15 seeds germinate. They grew to about two inches and then died. We followed the instructions.

          I've read reviews and most of us have great fun and success growing this bonsai forest. I now have 20 seedings growing in the pots! I started by putting seeds in a wet paper towel on a saucer, and placing it under a table lamp for a week. Then I followed the instructions and within 10 days I had sprouts. More each day. Sits on my dining table with east facing window and morning light (not direct sunlight). The sprouts follow the light so turn them around everyday! Love watching Nature

          Comments about UncommonGoods Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest:

          Maybe a little optimistic to buy "Redwood" trees that seem to live forever but this set is pretty neat. The galvanized container and drip pan are well made, there are plenty of easy to start seeds and potting materials as well as trimming tools and the necessary rock. I live in Florida and the little seedlings sprouted and are on their way after only 4-6 weeks with window light. Will make a great gift for friends for sure. Quality item right down to the ribbons and packing. Nice touch.
