Hints For Growing Bonsai in Bolingbrook, Illinois

Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Bolingbrook

For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development necessary to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed to address this dilemma. It'll reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years. Hints in the next post provides you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you should test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done annually during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and examine the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, fastening it with a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to allow emptying on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will likely be put.

The following part of the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old soil from your rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any roots that are dead, rotting, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root

Finally set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that 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 will be able to develop freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its beauty.
