Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Ocono Lufty
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be performed to deal with this dilemma. The root system will be reorganized by it and permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Hints in the next post will provide you with an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check on whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this needs to be done each year during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree out of its pot and examine the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will probably be put, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic mesh, fixing it using a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to allow emptying on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will probably be put.

The following part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old ground from the rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any roots that are decaying, dead, wounded or infected, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally put the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation whole, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will probably be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be performed with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
