Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Eden
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development required to support the plant that is growing. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be performed, to deal with this problem. It's going to reorganize the root system and permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Tricks in the next post will provide you with an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this has to be done every year during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out if you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it using a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will likely be put, and then to allow emptying.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for almost any roots that are dead, rotting, wounded or infected, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Eventually put the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation entire, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is going to have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is precious, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its attractiveness.
