Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in North

For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development necessary to support the growing plant. To address this problem, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed. It will reorganize the root system and permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Hints in the next post provides you with an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you should check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out if you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will probably be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, securing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, to allow emptying, and then on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will probably be put.

When the pot is ready, another step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old ground from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any injured, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root

Eventually set the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.

With the bonsai repotting operation entire, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will undoubtedly be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its beauty as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
