Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Oil
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development required to support the plant that is growing. To deal with this issue, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed. It'll reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Suggestions in the following post will give you an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done each year during early springtime, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it's 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 with a plastic mesh, fixing it using a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, to allow draining, after which on top of it a layer of ground, on which the tree will probably be put.

When the pot is ready, the next step in the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old land from the rootball, rather using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any roots that are dead, rotting, wounded or infected, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely 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 undoubtedly be able to grow freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its attractiveness.
