Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Loyal
For each 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. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed to address this dilemma. It'll reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years. Hints in the next article will give you an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done annually during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, securing it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will probably be put, after which to enable draining.

When the pot is prepared, another part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old land in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any roots that are dead, rotting, wounded or infected, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Plan 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 wire that is anchorage, to make certain that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not 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 complete, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is likely to be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own beauty.
