For the green-fingers again. If you are not a fan of aligning the seeds to reveal a message as it grows, then this would be a perfect option!

The message bean is etched with short messages such as "I love you", "Happy Birthday" or "Congratulations!" The recipient just has to open, water and wait for it to grow and reveal the secret message on the cotyledon. It typically takes about 3 - 10 days. The seedling will carry the message for several weeks before the message dries up and falls of.
