Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Elsie
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development needed to support the growing plant. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed, to deal with this issue. It'll reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Tricks in the next article will give you an overview about how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done annually during early springtime, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a new pot, when the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic mesh, securing it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to permit draining of ground, where the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it.

When the pot is ready, the next step in the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old land from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any infected, dead, wounded or decaying roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make certain that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation whole. After that, its root system is likely to be able to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
