Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Mineral Springs
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development required to support the growing plant. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed to deal with this problem. The root system will be reorganized by it and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Hints in the next post provides you with an overview on the best way to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done annually during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will probably be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, securing it using a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, of ground, on which the tree will soon be planted a layer on top of it, and after that to enable emptying.

The next part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for just about any dead, rotting, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually put the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that 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 complete. After that, its root system will probably be able to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is precious, and in your enjoyment of its beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
