Default [IBC] Large vs small leaves

I have noticed that when I bought my Serissa a few
months ago, it had large leaves, whereas now the new
leaves have approx. halved in size.
Other than that, the tree is growing fine.

Any suggestions ?

If the leaves appear to be green and healthy (and your Serissa
would tell you if they weren't healthy), don't worry. You WANT
small leaves on a bonsai.

My guess is that you have placed your serissa where it gets more
light than it had in its old home.

Dimitrios:
You are probably giving your Serissa more light than it had in it's
previous place. This is a good thing!!! ;-)

That is what you want, the smaller, the better. Probably you are giving it
better light than it had before. Keep doing what you are doing.
