Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Berlin
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining further development required to support the growing plant. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed, to deal with this issue. It permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the next post will give you an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this must be done each year during early spring. Gently ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented, if you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, fastening it using a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will soon be put, and after that to allow draining.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from your rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for almost any injured, dead, rotting or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Eventually put the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming 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 now need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system will have the ability to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
