Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Rockyford
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development necessary to support the growing plant. To address this dilemma, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed. It'll reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years. Suggestions in the next post will give you an overview on the best way to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early spring. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will probably be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, fastening it using a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, to enable draining, and then on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will likely be put.

When the pot is prepared, the next part of the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old land in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for any roots that are dead, rotting, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally place the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system will undoubtedly have the ability to develop freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own beauty.
