Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Fremont Valley
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development required to support the plant that is growing. To address this issue, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed. It allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the next article will give you an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This has to be done every year during early springtime, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out if you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it using a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to permit draining of soil, where the tree will be put a layer on top of it.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for almost any injured, dead, rotting or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Plan 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 make sure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring 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 complete. After that, its root system is likely to have the ability to grow growing fine feeder roots in a denser 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 beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
