Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Mustang
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development necessary to support the plant that is growing. To address this problem, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out. It will reorganize the root system and permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time. Tricks in the next article will provide you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early springtime. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and examine the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out, in case you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, fixing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, to enable emptying, and then on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will soon be planted.

When the pot is ready, another part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for any dead, decaying, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't 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 whole. After that, its root system will likely have the ability to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own attractiveness.
