How to grow your seed

Thousands of days full of curiosity begin now.

 

Thank you for caring. You bought our product and found a seed in it. Let's plant it.

 

But to be fair, growing bonsai from seed is a process that requires a bit of preparation, and the first attempt can seem overwhelming. It's not that hard and you can always do it again. Like many other difficult things in our lives, it pays to keep going. There is nothing better than seeing your tree grow.

Unwrap and let it cool, sort of.

 

 

1- Preparation for soaking: take the seeds and put them in a container that can hold hot water. Put the seeds in the container and run the tap water. It should be warm, but not so hot that you can't hold your hand in it.

2 - Soaking: cover the seeds with warm to hot water and let them soak for 24 hours. At first the seeds/seedpods will flow out, but after a while they will sink to the bottom.

3 - Stirring the peat moss: Put the seeds and seeds in the peat moss and mix them: Take the peat moss and sand and fill 1/2 a ziplock bag with them to get the right amount. Transfer the mixture from the bag to a bowl and mix the seeds/seedpods with the soil. Pour in some water and mix again. It must be moist but not soggy. After mixing, put it back into the zip lock bag.

4 - Push in, close and cool: Squeeze the ziplock bag and squeeze most of the air out, making a few small holes near the top of the bag for ventilation. Seal it, put the bag in the fridge - a vegetable crisper works great - and leave it there for 90 days. Check the bag from time to time for mould. If mould does appear, you can carefully use any fungicide, regardless of brand. However, apply it very carefully and do not put too much inside.

5 - After 90 days: check the bag for germination. Take the germinated seed/seeds and take the coconut pellet you found inside the product. Now water with enough water to see the pellet grow in size. If it can no longer grow, put the seed inside. If you don't want to use the pellet, you can use starter soil and a small pot.

6 - Let it grow: take the growing pellet or your pot and place it on a sunny counter. Your tree baby needs some sunlight, but direct sun will burn them.

7 - Take care: wait for your tree baby to sprout, grow and thrive. DON'T FEED IT. Once the seedling has grown, you can transplant it into a larger pot. After a few weeks, you can apply some fertilizer and water it adequately.

 

 

Method 2 - paper towel. Longer soaking time but less trouble.

 

1 - Preparing for soaking: take the seeds and put them in a container that can hold hot water. Place the seeds in the container and run the tap water. It should be warm, but not so hot that you can't hold your hand in it.

2 - Soaking: cover the seeds with warm to hot water and let them soak for 24 hours. At first the seeds/seedpods will ooze out, but after a while they will sink to the bottom. After 24 hours, change the water and repeat the process three times for a total soaking time of 72 hours.

3 - Paper towel: Take the soaked seeds and place them on a plain paper towel (some people use toilet paper) and fold the paper towel several times. If you use more than one seed, be sure to make some space between them so they can rest comfortably.

4 - Push, close, chill: Place the paper towel with the seeds in a zip lock bag. Close it and squeeze to push out most of the air, and make a few small holes near the top of the bag for ventilation. Seal it and place the bag in the fridge - a vegetable crisper works great - and leave it there for 90 days. Check the bag from time to time for mould. If there is any mould, you can carefully use any fungicide, regardless of the brand. However, apply it very carefully and don't put too much inside.

5 - After 90 days, check the bag for germination. Take the germinated seed/seeds and take the growing pellets you found inside the product. Now water with enough water to see the pellet grow in size. If it can no longer grow, put the seed inside. If you don't want to use pellets, you can use your own starter soil and a small pot.

6 - Let it grow: take the growing pellet or your pot and place it on a sunny counter. Your tree baby needs some sunlight, but direct sun will burn them.

 7 - Watch out: wait for the tree to sprout, grow and thrive. DO NOT. Once the seedling has grown, you can transplant it into a larger pot, care for it with fertilizer and water it adequately.
