I have one I have been "bonsaiing" for a while, but very casually. When I get home tonight I will take a look at it and see how I did the cuts and report on how they are healing. I really don't do much with it, probably a light trimming now and then. It's been a while since any major cuts on it have been made. Mind you as well it is a typical houseplant type of Gardinia, not the I believe Japanees species.
