Yay!
I wish we could plant more than one tree - I'd like one in China also!

As long as we are wishing, they should give us one tree in each country! :D

What a great idea! I just planted one in Taiwan. I wish we could plant in Japan too.

I'm a little upset. I only just found out about it today and there are no more plots left :( Wish they could open up a few more. For example making China and India 900 plots each to equal Taiwan?

Awwwwww!!!

Via email:

"Your tea tree has sprouted

Congratulations! Your tea-tree has been selected & is being raised in an indoor nursery until it is ready to begin its outdoor journey. In the next few weeks we will update you as to its status & provide instructions on how you can help to take care of it along the way.

In the mean-time, please enjoy the glimpse of what your Earth Day contribution has done thus far!"

To the ADMIN: I think I typed my email in incorrectly (b/c I used a email different than my normal one) and I'm worried that I wont get updates on my tea plant :(

Got my email! But I was thinking about it... based on the fact that it can take camellia sinensis seeds between 1 to 6 months to sprout... I'm guessing these were already planted and we just claimed the spot they were in... :( I feel less special all of a sudden.

Well they said trees all along, except in one place it where it said seeds. But I never thought from seed, I was assuming we picked the spot and they planted a seedling.

And shhhh your baby seedling might hear and feel unloved and rejected.
Adoption requires complete commitment. :)

Hmm. I am seeing my plant on the field, but never got email saying it sprouted. Did it die in infancy? I sent email yesterday to customer service to inquire but haven't received a reply. Anyone else have this happen? I know my email address was typed correctly because I can see the greyed-out ghost of it in the sign up page.

Just got my email last night. So I suspect they are doing smaller lists of emails and not just a giant batch?
