My journey with bonsai trees began in February 2014 when my partner gifted me my first bonsai. I was so happy and eager to begin shaping it, however little did I know it had a long way to go. I had no experience in bonsai and did not know the difference between a sappling and an actual tree. The tree given to me was a Serissa foetida or “night of a thousand stars tree” it was quiet pretty and I left it to grow on it’s own, watering it as it should be done to keep it healthy. At one point though somewhere around March there was a storm and it feel out of it’s pot that cracked. The tree then proceeded to freak out and lose all of its leaves. I had faith in it and kept watering the tree in its new pot and sure enough it came back.
