Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Red Fork
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development required to support the plant that is growing. To address this dilemma, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed. It will reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time. Tips in the next article will give you an overview on the best way to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this must be done annually during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, securing it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, to permit draining, and then on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will be planted.

When the pot is prepared, another step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any infected, dead, injured or decaying roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally put the tree in 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 coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation whole, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is going to have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is precious, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
