Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Hanna

For each tree that is bonsai, 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 carried out to deal with this problem. The root system will be reorganized by it and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Suggestions in the next post will provide you with an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you have to check whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This needs to be done each year during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a brand new pot, when the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic mesh, securing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to enable draining of earth, where the tree will probably be put a layer on top of it.

When the pot is prepared, the next part of the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old earth from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any injured, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from spreading 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 it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully 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 now need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system is going to be able to grow growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
