Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Jacinto
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 needed to support the growing plant. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed, to deal with this issue. It will reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time. Tips in the next article will give you an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check on whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This has to be done each year during early springtime, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a brand new pot, when the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, securing it using a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to permit draining of earth, on which the tree will likely be planted a layer on top of it.

The following step in the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old land from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for almost any wounded, dead, rotting or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't 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 whole. After that, its root system is going to be able to grow freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own beauty.
