I saw a sprout at about 5 months into the process and no mold thus far. I bought this product for myself (an adult). I have always wanted to own CPs and I thought this product would be great for me cuz I like growing plants and flowers from seeds. Growing CPs from seed is a lengthy process that I don't think most adults understand. Alot of the reviewers sound like they haven't read the instructions thoroughly. It does take around 4 months or so before u see a sprout and its about 2 years before u can feed them insects. The instructions do address the possibility of mold and how to prevent it and remove it if it attacks your plants. If u truly want to buy this dome for a child, learn about CPs yourself (books or internet search). As part of your reasearch, be aware that the manufacturer has the instruction booklet available for download on their website and a section on FAQs for this dome. Try giving the dome along with books about CPs (growing, caring, basic info about CPs for children) to help them understand about the wait and responsibility. Don't give a child this particular dome unless you truly believe they can handle the wait and the responsibility. I am so glad that I didn't just read the reviews for the this product, otherwise I wouldn't have my beloved plants. Note: Dunecraft makes other great kits that are just as awesome, but minus the wait factor.
