Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in West Irvine
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development necessary to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be carried out to deal with this problem. It's going to reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years. Tips in the following post will provide you with an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done every year during early spring, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed, in case you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, securing it using a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to allow emptying of ground, on which the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it.

The following part of the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old land in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for any wounded, dead, rotting or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Eventually set the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the 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 will likely have the ability to grow freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own beauty.
