Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Ludlow
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development needed to support the plant that is growing. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out to address this dilemma. It allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the next post will give you an overview about how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this must be done every year during early spring. Gently ease the tree out of its pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented, 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 using a plastic net, securing it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to permit emptying on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will probably be planted.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old land from your rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any injured, dead, rotting or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining 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 have the ability to grow growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
