Bonsai Report #3: Requiem

The Bonsai project is at an end. The jig is up.
The kit came with a small bag of seeds, and so it was a war of attrition from the start. Every time I came home from a trip, I'd eye the small pot, and when I saw no progress from the two seeds inside, I would declare them unfit for duty and carbon freeze two more recruits. It is my unfortunate task to announce that the last two soldiers have not become bonsai sprouts.
Maybe I'll get one that's already born and see what I can do with that.

I think you have to adopt one that's already like 84 years old and trained/pruned so that all you have to do is look at it.
