    To the other Posters,
    Baby trees take TIME to grow. These are ACTUAL trees like you see in a forest, and will get to an incredible height. But trees take time to grow and the art of Bonsai trains them to be miniature. They don't just sprout. These are not sea monkeys.

    It takes about 2-3 weeks to see the tiniest (and I mean tiny) sprout form. If your seeds didn't sprout at all, they included a mailing order for free replacement seeds! They're happy to send you a few packs. I owned the regular mini bonsai kit and begun my plant in the winter (which is the dormant phase for the plants EVERYWHERE) so it took until the spring to sprout. Unfortunately my little brother had ruined my tree before I had a chance to cultivate it.
    I just purchased the mini Berry kit today and have begun germinating the seeds. I'm excited to start cultivating my tree! Patience is most definitely needed for this kind of work, so I don't think children should do this without supervision.

    Nothing grew!

    I bought 2 of the Mini Merry Berry Bonsai kits, one for my granddaughter and one for myself. We carefully followed the instructions and nothing ever grew. We were both very disappointed. I attempted to call the company and let them know but was never able to reach anyone. So, it was just money wasted!
