The kit also came with some tiny scissors, a very tiny pot, and a preformed peat pellet to be used as soil in the pot. I will be growing my seedlings in regular little 3" pots for now though. When they are a little bigger, I'll move them to some little ceramic bonsai pots I already own. After browsing through Google images, I see that I may have a fantastic bonsai specimen in about 100-300 years. I hope my future grandchildren appreciate bonsai.
Apparently you can buy this kit on Amazon.com. I was intrigued by this customer review:
I hope this child is actually attending the "scool" book club, as I hear that reading is beneficial to spelling. Nitpicking aside, I've never heard of bonsai as the ancient art of fermentation. I can't imagine the fermented product of peat and jack pine seeds would even produce a decent beverage, because northern Canadians would have been aware of it by now. And $4.00 US for a tiny wad of peat? Wow. Surely you could collect some dryer lint and housedust, or just go OUTSIDE and find some soil!
