I fell immediately in love with a Bonsai Japanese Maple I saw in the background of a Martha Stewart Living article. So when I saw this, I got an idea:
The box clearly states that the resulting Canadian Sugar Maple can be tended and coaxed into a bonsai. I had to go for it.
I planted the seeds a few days ago, and quickly realized that I did it wrong. I hadn't fished the 'amended instructions' from the bottom of the box. I don't think it's a BIG problem, exactly. But I wouldn't be surprised if this is the first entry with the tag 'project fail'.
But who knows? Maybe I'm wrong and I managed to aerate the soil enough after all. We shall see, potential Bonsai. We shall see.
