Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Bustins Island
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development necessary to support the plant that is growing. To deal with this problem, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be completed. The root system will be reorganized by it and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Hints in the following post will give you an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done each year during early spring, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed, should you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will probably be planted, 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 bottom of the pot, then, and to enable draining on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will likely be put.

When the pot is ready, the following step in the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old earth from your rootball, rather using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any dead, decaying, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally put the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make certain that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder 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 complete, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own beauty.
