Please help me identify my bonsai's specie

For anyone who knows more than I do about bonsais (most people) it should be easy to identify this bonsai.
It produces white flowers with only 5 petals each in a star shape. In between each petal behind the flower are thin green "petals" that are connected to the stem.
Strong roots, strong life.

If we can get some pictures it is allot easier to identify the type of tree you have :) This link will tell you how to post pictures on this forum,

From your description it sounds kinda like a flower from a Fukien Tea. This link shows some pictures of my Fukien Tea Bonsai.

There is a chance that it may be a serissa ( tree of a thousand stars ) here is a picture of my serissa. These flowers are really tiny and hard to take pictures of but look at the leafs of both the fukien tea and the serissa.

If neither one of these trees looks like yours don't worry. There are lots of flowering bonsai and with a picture we can help you figure out what kind of tree you have.

Hope this helps :)

I have another bonsai that I need identifying, please help.

Description: When branches and leaves are cut, a white sap oozes out, the leaves are pointed at the end, but they are rounded at the base.

This is a Ficus retusa bonsai. They are very common, and easy to work with.
