Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Frelighsburg
For each 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. To address this problem, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed. It is going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Tips in the next post will give you an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to check whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree remains in dormancy, this has to be done every year during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and examine the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to enable emptying of earth, where the tree will be planted a layer on top of it.

When the pot is ready, the next part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old earth from your rootball, rather using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any roots that are rotting, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Eventually set the tree in 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 coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation whole. 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 roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its beauty.
