Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Jenkins
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development needed to support the growing plant. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out to address this problem. It'll reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Tips in the following article provides you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and examine the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, securing it with a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, on top of it a layer of ground, on which the tree will be planted, after which to allow draining.

The next part of the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old ground in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for almost any wounded, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually place the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make certain that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming 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 completely, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system will probably be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
