This gift was right on the money!
I bought this as a gift for my sister-in-law who loves gardening. When it arrived in a sealed box I was concerned that it needed light and water. I called uncommongoods customer service as there were no instructions anywhere in the package. The rep said, yes I should open for light & water. To my surprise, when I oped the tin ( I had already opened the packing box to look for instructions), it was filled with soil and there was a packet of seeds. I was not expecting a "grow from seed" bonsai tree! I expected an already grown bonsai tree. I don't think I would have bought a packet of seeds, bag of dirt, tin can & little scissors for almost $50. I Think she liked it. We will see what grows. Not happy about the description.
This is a review of the way the product arrived - I have not grown the bonsai yet. It is a beautiful package and high quality. I'm excited to give this to my mom for Christmas!

I am giving this to my father-in-law for Christmas. He is a huge green thumb (as am I), so hopefully he can get it to grow. The packaging is adorable and very sturdy. I like that the tree can be grown in the box it ships in.
So excited for my mother and I to grow our trees together. I actually think its meaningful to start from a seed and see your plant grow overtime. My mother's has started growing already after two weeks (supposed to take up to a month). Mine has yet to sprout but i have been enjoying looking every few days hoping to see new life! :)
I bought this as a gift for my mother. She is a beginner gardener, and this gift is perfect for her to use indoors! She has a crepe myrtle in her yard, and now she can have an easy to grow bonsai in her office!

Not at all what I thought we were purchasing. Just a seed and dirt. Very embarrassing and very disappointed. Will never purchase from this site again.
Very cool, she loved it!
I purchased this as a birthday gift for a friend. The packaging is beautiful. I just hope it grows so that she can enjoy it!
