My first go round with bonsai was in the mid 1980's until the mid 1990's. I frequented the Monastery in Conyers and befriended Brother Paul. They had several old Serissas there and Paul let me take cuttings. This was probably 1988 or 89. I gave one of the rooted cuttings to my mother who planted it in her yard. It is still there. Over the years she rooted several more from her original and planted them in her yard. The one I dug up was in the way. I tossed it in a pot with some potting soil and have done nothing but water it the last 2 years. It stayed outside all winter and is currently covered in flowers.
