Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Baldur
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development necessary to support the growing plant. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed, to deal with this dilemma. It permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the following article provides you with an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done annually during early spring, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented, should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fastening it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, of earth, on which the tree will be planted a layer on top of it, after which to allow emptying.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old soil from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any decaying, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system will have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own beauty.
