Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Grandy
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development needed to support the growing plant. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed to deal with this problem. The root system will be reorganized by it and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Hints in the next post will give you an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This needs to be done annually during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and examine the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will probably be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, fixing it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to permit emptying of earth, on which the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it.

The following step in the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old soil in the rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for any decaying, dead, wounded 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 set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest 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 entire. After that, its root system is likely to have the ability to grow freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its beauty along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
