Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - serissa is one of the most popular of all bonsai subjects, but it can be difficult to maintain. It has a tendency to drop its leaves at the first sign of stress - too little water; too much water; too little light; too cold; too hot; just being moved to a new location, etc. Never water serissa when it is without leaves. Serissa can get straggly after a few years unless it is pruned regularly. Prune after flowering to keep its fine dense form, and deadhead spent flowers to increase the blooming period. Water faithfully, especially during warm weather. If serissa gets too dry it may drop its leaves; if that happens do not water until new leaves come back or the roots will surly rot. For plants in the ground outdoors, mulch over the root zone, and don't allow grass to encroach.
