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 forestóredwood 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.

I bought this for my husband who is a nature lover. He was so excited to try this out. He watched you tube videos and followed the instructions and only ended up with 1 sapling out of all those seed. I really sad for him that it is not working out like it should.

I haven't killed them yet...!

I purchased this kit a couple months ago for my desk at work, and it's exactly as advertised. It arrived promptly, contained everything I needed, and looked good too (especially if you were to get this as a gift for someone and the presentation is important). My first seeds sprouted after a couple weeks and quickly got a couple inches tall, however I did have a little problem with my plants suddenly turning purple and wilting... I'm not an experienced gardener (in fact, I have the blackest of thumbs; everything I touch seems to wilt and die), so I emailed customer support with some pics and they were very kind (and expedient!) in helping me out -- they gave me some advice and even send me some additional seeds in case mine didn't all make it. Now my little redwoods are a couple months along and I (surprisingly) haven't killed them yet! Overall, a good price on a quality item and fantastic customer service. Would recommend any time!

So far... GREAT!

I planted about 20 seeds. 15 of them sprouted. I lost 7. So far 8 of them are doing well. I made my own incubator, old fish tank, wrapped in foil and LED kitchen light. I watered every 3 days. The light was on for 12 hours a day until they sprouted then reduced to 6 -8 hours. They took about 1 month to sprout. A common weed that sprouts with bonsai was also coming up. Make sure you pull those!! At 2 inches tall I moved them to the window. I water about every other day to 2 days. I'm in Alaska and so far they've done well with darkness and mild chill. THEY ARE INDOORS. With more sunlight coming for summer im sure they will thrive. First I had multiple seeds in one pot but after about an inch i transferred them all to their own. They are fragile while small so if you do move them handle them gently.

So great!!!

So great! For starters the packaging is beautiful! For seconds they are so great! Instructions were right that it took about a month to see sprouts. I know some people here said theirs didn't grow - I gave mine the sunniest spot I had and 1.5 oz of water per day per planter and I got about 15 sprouts! 5 months along and they are still going strong although they are high maintenance and still get 1.5 oz of water per day (and are still in the sunniest spot I have)! Enjoy!
