HELP -- Looking for the name of a kids kit...it is like a Chia Pet, but with flowers

HELP, I missed it a few weeks ago on the Amazon lightning deals, but it was a kit that you would paint flower seed and it would grow like a Chia Pet, but with flowers. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

Any help would be appreciated.

They aren't just like a single thing or flower, it was more like a scene.

You mean like the Strange Plant growing kit? My daughter got that last year at MindWare and none of the flowers bloomed. http://www.amazon.com/Dune-Craft-Str...=strange+plant

I am having NO luck finding it.

It was cute, it was like a little scene and it grew different flowers on the different places that you placed them.

Hmm...I haven't seen one like that before. Can you share any more details about it from your memory, such as the shape of it (round dish garden, stand upright like a Chia Pet, rectangle, etc) what "scene" you remember (like did it have decorations or just a scene made from the flowers), was it geared toward kids?

I have been searching on Google and have yet to see something where you spread the seeds on like a Chia Pet.

I know I have googled too...and I am stiking out. I emailed Amazon, but I bet I am going to be out of luck. It had many different things that you "painted" the seeds on so that you would have a variety of flowers once they grow. It was the red terracotta color, I don't remember the shape.

Could it have been this? Terraotta color but I think it's plastic and I'm not sure how you plant the seeds.
