    In the year 2001, I started a water jasmine from a cutting. I was intrigued if I could make a bonsai from it. I cultivated it from pot to pot until reaching a 15 gallon nursery pot. Since my knowledge of bonsai at that moment was primitive, I just let it grow without any styling. When the trunk got thicker I started to style it.
