Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Cementon
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development needed to support the growing plant. To deal with this issue, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed. The root system will be reorganized by it and permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Suggestions in the following article will provide you with an overview on the best way to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to test whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This needs to be done every year during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and examine the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, fixing it using a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will probably be planted, and after that to enable draining.

The next part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old ground from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any dead, rotting, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually place the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remainder 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 whole. After that, its root system will probably be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
