Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in New Light
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 necessary to support the growing plant. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be completed, to deal with this issue. It permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years and will reorganize the root system. Hints in the next post provides you with an overview on the best way to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check on whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this has to be done each year during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and examine the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, fixing it using a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, of earth, on which the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it, and then to enable emptying.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old ground from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully 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 now need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system is likely to have the ability to develop freely, 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 beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its own beauty along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
