To try and paraphrase a really dilligent amature who wrote for an article in the (1966 edition) of "Handbook on bonsai: Special techniques
Makoto Inawashiro wote about a grower and his grandson
who grew and developed a maple between 1879 and publication (1966) that the grandson presented to Makoto.
So if 110 years is not an unreasonable amount of time to grow a bonsai out from seed, then hop right on it.
