Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Nelson
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development required to support the plant that is growing. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out to address this problem. The root system will be reorganized by it and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Hints in the next post will provide you with an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this has to be done every year during early spring. Gently ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, fixing it using a bit 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 process will be to displace the old ground from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for almost any dead, rotting, 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 place the tree inside 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 completely 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.
With the bonsai repotting operation whole, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will likely be able to develop growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own beauty.
