Our Bonsai Redwood Forest is more than just a potted plant, this is a grove of miniature trees! The Dawn Redwood (metasequoia glyptostroboides) was known only as a fossil until 1946 when a forester in China discovered the first known living specimen in the middle of a rice paddy. It was named the "Discovery Tree" and symbolizes the surprises still to be found in nature. Appropriate for Zones 4-8, it makes a fast growing landscape tree or will bonsai very well due to the speed with which it grows. Includes tree and moss seed, seedling training pots, seed starting wafers, growing medium, bonsai scissors and rake with spade, river stone, directions, and recycled US steel bonsai growing box. Proper germination should result in 5-7 viable plants. Will begin to sprout in a few weeks. Image shows 3 year old forest.

Comments about Product: I followed the directions and used a desk lamp to add more light. Successful so far. I have seven trees and it looks like more will sprout. I still have my backup seeds. I am ordering a kit for my son at his request, when he saw my tree sprouts. My whole family is pretty impressed. I have never tried to grow a bonsai, especially this lovely forest!!
Comments about Product: I followed the directions exactly and carefully kept the soil moist but not too moist and kept them in a warm place. It's been 6 weeks and not a tree is growing anywhere. It's such a cool idea and I so wanted it to work (it was a Christmas present). Thankfully Wind and Weather has made it right.
