    Bonsai starter kid

    As a person who love to see how a plant grows from a seed, I was very amazed when I saw my plant grow every day. I could actually see it grow between morning and afternoon. After 8 days I had small acacia trees!!! This was amazing. Thanks for the wonderful starter kid. Greetings Tina

    So far it has been great. I had to do an emergency re-potting after one of my trees fell off its bench. Never having re-potted a tree this was a bit daunting but, with the help of the e-book and a few other"goodies" that I got from Terry the tree is in its new pot and doing well!!
