With a little care and support, you can create a bonsai mother that takes up very little space.
Once they reach about five or six inches, they can be picked up as your first clone. As you cut it, cut just above the knot of the first leaf of new growth. This will help keep your mother small and will help thicken and strengthen the stem.
