- For those put off by the previous reviews, don't be alarmed, yes the instructions are somewhat confusing, however there is more than enough to get you going.
- Also I'd like to make the point that results are not instant, will NOT appear in 8-10 days and, and will take time and effort if you want to succeed.
- Ok, so the instructions state that there is enough for two attempts?? This is questionable as the seed is difficult to seperate, so what I did was just put each sachet (4 in total) into 4 pots(out of the 5? which is also confusing). Then according to the plan, cover in a plastic bag and leave for 3-4 weeks in a cool light place. As it was christmas, I put mine in the conservatory, but any suitable place would do.
- Following that, the pots were then placed in a fridge!!! (yes a fridge) for another 3-4 weeks. Hence why 8-10 day results are ridiculous. After this they are to be placed in an area with sunlight and watered, so I put mine on the windowill at Uni.
- Now I planted mine on the 22/12/10, and after all the storing and cooling, I fist saw shoots (yes multiple but I'll explain) at about mid february, so about a month and a bit after sowing. Primarily I got around 8-10 small stalks with petals on in each pot, however a week or so later, one large shoot emerged from each pot, and now as I write today 04/04/11 the single shoots range from 4-5cm and look awesome!! I now have to leave them for a YEAR before doing anything in the way of cutting, but its worth the wait.
So just to summarise, it will take ages, the sowing process its borderline silly, but I definatly recommend it!!!!
So what i did:
i poured the seeds in a bowl and seperated them into five with a mix of seeds in each.
I put the given plant pots in a tub this was just to catch the water as i did them one at a time, i then planted one selection of seeds in that pot when the soil had swollen up fully and placed it into a very thin plastic freezer bag with no holes in adn poured in the excess water that came out of the bottome of hte plant pot into the tub. I did this for each of the plant pots and then put them in my mums shed where they would be out of direct sunlight for i think it was three weeks.
Today i took them out and they have all sprouted. So i havent put them in the fridge.
The instructions dont tell you how to look after the bonsai nore do they tell you what to do incase they have sprouted only tell you about what you need to do f they havent.
But i have bought a few starter kits (which havent been this make) and were dissapointed.
But this make i would deffinatly get again :)
