Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Sweetwater
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development needed to support the growing plant. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed, to address this problem. It will reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Hints in the following post provides you with an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you must check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this must be done every year during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, when the tree will likely be put, 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 base of the pot, then, and to allow draining on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will be planted.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old land from your rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for any wounded, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation entire, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will be able to develop growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own beauty.
