Acer Palmatum Japanese Maple (also known as A. Palmatum) is a medium-sized, hardy deciduous ornamental tree that is very popular in gardens and landscapes in temperate areas for the beautiful burnt red colour of its foliage. Acer Palmatum Japanese Maple provides a stunning display of colour. Acer Palmatum Japanese Maple is commonly grown in a wide range of soil types ranging from sandy loams through to heavier clays, with the plant able to tolerate variable soil moisture levels.
Like all Maple varieties, Acer Palmatum Japanese Maple is also suitable as a bonsai, provided the seeds are germinated in either Jiffy pellets for a shallow compact root system, or in a low-organic matter soil to ensure the plants are not very vigorous. If the young plants are not being started in Jiffy pellets, the tap-root should either be snipped or curled (J-rooted) within the first 8 - 12 weeks of germination, to ensure the plant remains optimally suited for bonsai.

they sent them pretty quickly but so far i've been too lazy to plant them so far but they're probably fine
Seeds came later than the expected delivery date,
Had to contact support, i received no response from support.
Seeds arrived a few days later.
Am assuming they either forgot to send the seeds or lied about the delivery time.
