Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Albany

For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed to address this issue. It allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years and will reorganize the root system. Tricks in the next post will provide you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you must check whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This must be done annually during early spring, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will probably be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, fixing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to allow emptying of soil, where the tree will be planted a layer on top of it.

When the pot is prepared, another part of the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for just about any wounded, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.

Eventually place the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.

With the bonsai repotting operation whole, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is going to be able to develop growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its beauty.
