Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest Kit

Shown actual size...


The phrase “mighty Redwood” does not pertain to the Dawn Redwoods ($50) found in this kit. Instead, these Gary Coleman-sized plants are ancestors of the giant Cali variety and were assumed to be extinct until one was discovered in a Chinese rice field in the 1940s. As one of only two known deciduous conifers (think back to middle school bio men), these Redwood’s green leafy needles will change to yellow and copper as the year progresses, adding a seasonal touch to your office or home without going full blown Martha. Black thumbs need not fret about rearing these saplings either, as the made in America kit includes tree and moss seeds, seedling training pots, seed starting wafers, and growing medium — placing only the responsibility of watering in your hands. If you can manage that, six to seven viable plants will be the fruits of your labor. In true Zen fashion, bonsai scissors, a rake, and river stones are provided too, giving you all the necessary tools for achieving inner-peace with nature from the comfort of your penthouse.
