I love this game, although that might just be because I love zen type games, but this is amazing, only wish there were more free types of trees.

Thanks! We're aiming to add more tree types in future updates :)

Great relaxing game

This game is great and pretty straight forward if you want a game that has a zen feel and just want something to relax too or if you like bonsai . Does take patience to wait for the bonsai to grow . The only issue I have run into is that I can not find out how to get more bonsai or leaf and color variations . I hope I will figure out soon or some notice would be made on how this is possible
