Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Empire
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development necessary to support the plant that is growing. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed to address this problem. It is going to reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Suggestions in the following article will provide you with an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to test whether it is 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 pot and examine the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, fastening it using a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to permit emptying of earth, where the tree will soon be planted a layer on top of it.

Another part of the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old earth in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any infected, dead, injured or rotting roots, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually place the tree in the prepared pot 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 are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system is likely to be able to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own attractiveness.
