This is what the bonsai plant looks like when it is shipped to you. When the Soothing Company places it in the box, they make sure that the plant is secure before they send it out. That right there is a plus because you don't want to order a plant and then next thing you know there is soil is all over the place or the plant is torn apart from the movement. When it comes to plants, you have to treat them delicately and take good care of them.
After about a month or so of having the plant, it bloomed! The Small Gardenia Bonsai usually blooms in March all the way till June. I know it's a short amount of time... I was honestly hoping it would be a lot longer than that. But, it was quite nice to look at each day or so. After the flowers started falling, the plant unfortunately was spotting and it was dying. I don't know if it was from too much sun, needed to be placed in a different location or who knows what it was.
It was disappointing that the plant didn't last very long. I was enjoying it very much and it was my perfect little stress reliever when the kids were getting on my nerves, lol. I enjoyed having it around, but it didn't last for very long. I know that they are supposed to last for up to five years. So yeah...
