Default Bonsai mom(s)

I thought it would be nice to have a Bonsai thread. I jump in first.
Here is my Swazi Skunk during some month in veg and pruning back up to the present day. I cut the roots several times along the way. She is now in a 2 L banana pot. I reckon, she is about 7 month old by now.

Today the first cutting from the last bunch taken - exactly 7 days after - has rooted. Without the use of any root hormones. I soaked the puck in tap water with a dash of seaweed added tho. They went in my heated propagator on the windowsill . I now only use a sharp scissor on the cuttings, dedicated to that job. Once in a while it goes in the dishwasher. I desinfect it with iso each time before and after a cutting session tho.
The mother is recovering, I trimmed her back once more and since I didn't had use for the clippings I fed them to one of my turtles, lol.

Here you can see how little space they actually need.

I was just asked abut Bonsai Moms somewhere else, I thought it would be a good idea to let you participate a bit via cut and paste. I have some new ones ready.
First a Bubba Kush GN03 Collection (==Gypsy Nirvana 2003???) before and after working with it. When a plant wants to leave me due to the torture I do to it, I let it go. I try to be not that sentimental.

The other two pics are the swazi skunk, before and after.
