    My web page has some links to some good bonsai sites.

    You will want to plant your seeds in a large pot and let it grow for 2 to 3 years before you even think about putting it in a bonsai pot.

    Bonsai is fun but like the fellow above said, from seed is a PITA! What kind of seed came with it?

    You can find great 2-4 year old trees on Ebay for very cheap and they are ready for bonsai training treatment. I just ordered five the other day, a japanese flowering cherry, two maples (orange & red) and two willows (one green one corkscrew). The only thing is sometimes if you order from a nursery with 100s of plants you never know what kind of tree material you're gonna wind up with, formal/informal upright, cascade, windswept, etc.

    Good luck!
