Bonsai Tree Kit
Great quality materials. Cute little bamboo pots with drip trays, seed envelopes, id tags, and instructions. I bought it as a gift and the recipient absolutely loved it; it's such a sweet little set. I took it out of the box it came in and set them up on a little acacia drip tray, so it looked even more appealing. I don't know how the seeds will work yet, she only planted them a few days ago in the soil provided. It will be some time before I'll know if they're viable or not, but so far so good.
Easily hang from any indoor or outdoor surface and enjoy the sound of the summer breeze as it flows through multiple agate slices. As a natural stone product, color patterns will vary. Each chime comes with ring for easy hanging on tree branches, outdoor structures or indoors.
