Comments about WILD WEST CACTUS PLANTING KIT PK/12:

I teach 3rd grade at a STEM magnet school and ordered 3 of these sets, paying for it out of my own pocket. I teach a research unit on the desert and thought this would be a good extension. Very few seeds, cheap pots, messy and 8 weeks later only 6 plants have sprouted. No directions for watering or care. Very disappointed for me and the students and a waste of close to $80.00. The pots are still in my classroom under grow lights and the kids are optimistic but...

Comments about WILD WEST CACTUS PLANTING KIT PK/12:

We used these for my son's 5th birthday. We didn't do the jute decoration, but instead used the conchos to make fun key rings for the kids' backpacks. I LOVED the educational info on the back of the seed packets.

Disappointed

Comments about WILD WEST CACTUS PLANTING KIT PK/12:

There was not enough jute or glue in the kit. But the most misleading part was the packet of cactus seeds--the ad promised 20 different cactus varieties and 120 seeds.In reality, we had 13 seeds--one for each pot with a seed left over. As far as variety is concerned, we had what looked like all one kind of white seed, with three black seeds. You'd be better off buying your own stuff because this is an expensive kit and difficult for my teen to wind the jute around the tiny plastic pot. Definitely not a craft for little ones with all the glue and the winding. The pots did look cute. Buy your own stuff.
