Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Buellton
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development required to support the growing plant. To deal with this dilemma, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed. It permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years and will reorganize the root system. Hints in the next article will give you an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you must check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done every year during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented, if you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will probably be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic mesh, fastening it with a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will probably be put, after which to enable emptying.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for almost any infected, dead, injured or decaying roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system will undoubtedly have the ability to develop growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in your enjoyment of its beauty as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
