In an answer to a recent post about when one can withdraw earnings from a Roth, you indicated that the 5 year clock starts ticking when you make the first conversion or contribution and earnings on all future conversions/contributions will be available tax free on the same date as the original. Does that apply if there is more than one Roth account or does each Roth account stand on its own?

Thanks for the clarification.
