Tropical Indoor Bonsai Tree Starter Seed Kit - Flamboyant Tree, Sacred Fig Tree, Purple Orchid Tree
The Superfly Bonsai Tree Starter Kit includes three very popular and common bonsai trees seeds for you to love and grow to full bonsai trees.
Bonsai is an art of patience and you can learn over time with your tree. Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you nurture a bonsai from seed to a show ready tree. This process will take many years, but you can create the exact tree you want when starting from seed. This kit is an excellent gift for a beginner that loves to grow things.
The Superfly Bonsai kit includes the seeds of the Flamboyant Tree (Delonix Regia), Sacred Fig (Ficus Religiosa) and the Purple Orchid Tree (Bauhinia Purpurea). These kits were developed and instructions written by professional bonsai growers to give you the best chance possible for success.
Level 1 Kit - This kit includes everything necessary to get your bonsai started and growing along with detailed instructions. Level 1 kits include the seeds of three bonsai trees, coir biodegradable starter pots, expanding soil wafers, tree type plant markers, pruning shearer/wire cutter combo scissors, bonsai book and a quick start guide.
Level 2 Kit - This kit includes everything necessary to grow your bonsai for the first 3-5 years. Level 2 kits include the seeds of three bonsai trees, plastic germination pots, professional germination soil, plastic bonsai training pots, plastic bonsai drip trays, premium bonsai soil, natural based bonsai fertilizer, bonsai book and a quick start guide.
Level 3 Kit - This kit includes everything necessary to grow your bonsai for the first 5-10 years. Level 3 kits include everything in level 2 kits plus some starter wire, pruning shearer/wire cutter combo scissors and a soil scoop. The plastic germination pots were replaced with a 6 section mini greenhouse.
Please Note: Finished Bonsai Are Not Included, this is a seed kit to grow your own. Extra seeds are provided as not all seeds will germinate and grow - this is just nature. Each batch of seeds is tested prior to shipping and germinate at 80% or higher. Many factors can contribute to seeds not growing or plants not making it. Superfly Bonsai is not responsible for seeds that do not germinate or plants that die. We have taken every precaution possible to help you be successful with your bonsai kit. To help with seeds that did not grow or trees that died, we created a seed replacement pack for $3.00 plus shipping to give it a try again. If no seeds germinated, you did something wrong - likely a temperature problem.
Planted according to instructions and plants are doing ok
My flamboyant tree is starting to grow
While doing the kit it was very clear the water they tell you to add to the soil disc is wayyy too much so I ended up wasting one and having to use my own soil. Then I just eyeballed the water for the other discs. Seeds have not sprouted yet from this kit but it has only been a few days. Otherwise the kit was very nicely packaged.
Bought for Christmas gifts. Awesome service and fast shipping! Will follow with product review later.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
how do you use the starter kit I have never used one before
There is a booklet and set of instructions included with every kit. It was written by bonsai professionals, and is very easy to understand. Perfect for novice to advanced! If you have any questions once you've started your kit, please feel free to contact us through the website - we are more than happy to help!
How long does it take for these trees to grow ? From seed? I’m 60 years old Will i still be alive to start trimming and pruning them ?
These seeds are like any other tree seeds. They sprout then grow some each year. If you want a show quality bonsai in 2 years, buy a pre-made bonsai as these will take 10+ years to be a good bonsai. You can begin working them on year 2 or 3 depending on your goals for the tree.
How is the drainage of the germination soil?
The drainage soil is organic high porosity soil and is used for germinating the seeds and the first 6 months to year only. So basically it drains about as well as germination soil can and still be good as drainage soil. I would not use it for bonsai in bonsai pots.
I have cats, are this plants safe to have around them?
Some are toxic to dogs so I can only assume that they are not good for cats.
