Great for a time out

I love being able to cultivate a bonsai tree at my leisure without feeling pressured by the game to constantly pay attention to it for hours on end.
The UI and general design is lovely and gives intuitive feedback and gives me the information I need to jump right in and figure things out without being bombarded with text and tutorials.
I can definitely see myself checking in on my Bonsai regularly.

My son has opened his ‘fourth eye’

This game has recently been brought to my attention from my edgy son, Nathaniel. Before this app caught his eye he was cutting his wrists and getting me broke from hospital bills, not anymore. I am in great deed for this app has made my son more sane but very annoying, that was a trade I was willing to take.
Thank you.

Too many in app purchases

All the best looking trees need to be bought, and also you can only have two! You also need to add a way to speed up time, since I’m very inpatient. You should also make more choices of things to do, since I think it’s quite boring. Apart from all of that, I like it.
2 stars, though. Needs improvement
