I wanted to buy a horta doll after it was shown on TV. I thought that my niece would like one. Several years ago I had seen some horta dolls in a mall, but couldn't remember what mall it was and what store. So I ordered this online. To save postage I bought 3: one for my niece, one for my boss, and the 3rd was originally for a friend's birthday present, but in the end I sold it to one of my uncles. Fortunately, my boss asked me to take care of hers, so I could take pictures of its progress. First picture is the doll, still wrapped. Next is the 1st, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 11th day. Today is the 30th day and the grass are still growing. My friend in the US tells me that they have something similar: The Chia Pet.
