I am not sure I can tell if you actually are being serious or not, but if you are “getting people into bonsai” works better with a small starter plant thats durable instead of seed. Seed takes too long for most folks to keep interest.

Unless a friend has previously shown some horticultural skill, introducing them to bonsai is usually a fool's errand. And raising anything from seed is more difficult than starting with a live growing plant. Generally, bonsai make very poor gifts to people without "green thumbs". Just too much to learn. And not everyone is ready to "go back to school".

Fig or nothing for a beginner who wants a houseplant. Crawl, walk, maybe run.
