Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Hemlock
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development required to support the plant that is growing. To deal with this problem, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out. It enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the next article provides you with an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you must test whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This needs to be done every year during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will likely be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, fastening it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to permit draining on top of it a layer of ground, on which the tree will likely be put.

The following step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old ground from your rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any decaying, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation entire, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will likely have the ability to develop growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own attractiveness.
