Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Robin
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development needed to support the plant that is growing. To deal with this issue, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be carried out. It'll reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Hints in the next post will give you an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done every year during early spring, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, when the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic mesh, fastening it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to allow emptying of soil, where the tree will soon be planted a layer on top of it.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old land from the rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for just about any wounded, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation whole. After that, its root system will probably be able to grow growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its own beauty as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
