Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Westbury
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 plant that is growing. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed to address this dilemma. It enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the next article will give you an overview about how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done each year during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and examine 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 new pot, where the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, securing it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, to enable draining, and after that on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will be planted.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for any decaying, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Plan 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 anchorage wire, to make certain that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming 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 thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system will probably be able to grow 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 beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its beauty.
