Grow Your Own Cherry Blossom Bonsai Trees With This $18 Kit

Ican blame Bath & Body Works for my obsession with Japanese Cherry Blossom. Before I was introduced to perfume, I stocked up on fragrant lotions in middle school. Cherry blossom was always in my shopping bag. I miss that nostalgic smell, but I learned how to keep it around. A cherry blossom Bonsai is the perfect indoor plant for soft, flowery aromas.

Bonsai plants are simple to care for already, but this cherry blossom tree kit makes it so much easier. You'll receive six biodegradable Bonsai pots, six peat discs, and six plant markers and bags. The peat discs grow up to seven times their size when watered!

I didn't inherit my grandmother's green thumb, so this DIY miniature tree set is perfect for me. This is a chance to amp up your home decor, and not just with any typical plant. Cherry blossom Bonsai trees say a lot more than that artificial plant you've been eyeing on Amazon.

Many say that the cherry blossom tree symbolizes happiness and rebirth. I'm all about symbolism. As a former literature nerd in high school, I never believed that a poet called the curtains blue, just because they were blue. It represented something more profound.

As someone who wants their home to give off positive energy, I find myself styling my home with plants that have fascinating backstories about fostering the idea of happiness, cleanliness, and more.

If you need gift ideas or are looking to grow your own cherry blossom Bonsai trees, a Bonsai tree kit is something to consider highly. It's a change of scenery from the succulents we all adore, and of course, who doesn't love the smell of cherry blossom?
