Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Furry Creek
For every 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 plant that is growing. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out to address this dilemma. The root system will be reorganized by it and permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Tips in the following article will provide you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done every year during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed, if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, securing it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will be planted, and after that to allow draining.

When the pot is prepared, another step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old soil from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for almost any roots that are dead, rotting, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim 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 make sure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remainder 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 complete. After that, its root system will probably be able to grow freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is precious, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
