    Testimonials

    "Watching the first green bud peek through the brown dirt is a very exciting moment for kids of any age, parents too! For children old enough to appreciate the wonder of it all the experience is especially enriching. Testers reported how their children checked back every day eager to see if their plants would bloom inside this self contained terrarium. Patience is something that is not included and parents are going to have to dole that lesson out liberally as the excruciatingly long process of cactus growth drags on. Some testers suggested making it disappear for a while until the sprouting becomes more pronounced." National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, Holiday 2006

    "The mom's enjoyed the kitís compact size and quick planting results, and that the kids could do the kit independently. They found the Desert Hothouse to be low maintenance, and were surprised by the simplicity of the terrarium. The children were very curious about the types of plants included in the kit and the reference to bonsai. They were surprised at the amount of water required to germinate cacti and they enjoyed setting the desert scene. The instructions were clear and simple, and it was easy for the kids to do."
